MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a lively and engaging collection of contemporary action rhymes. Child-friendly images bounce, zoom, creep and bump off the pages filling the space with a lively visual experience. The colours are vibrant and textured - in tune with the immediacy of the words. So get zooming to the moon or tap, tap, tapping with those wooden spoons - it will be fun." - Ferelith Hordon, Books for Keeps 4 star review

"A perfect collection to introduce young children to the joy of poetry." - Charlotte Hacking, CLPE

"A collection of new nursery rhymes, this is a book for parents and adults to share with the very youngest to spark a lifelong love of poetry... a perfect post-lockdown book, allowing adults and small children to connect and share poems. It’s beautifully presented and perfectly illustrated." - CLIPPA nomination

"We do love this book, and I am about to Face Time with a 3-year old...which one shall I choose? Big Green Crocodile." - Dolphin Book Blog

"Whether your children are babies, soon to start reading at school, or somewhere in between, this is for you. Caroline Rabei's wonderful illustrations showing enthusiastic young child participants in all the action make this an even more delightful sharing experience for both children and adults." - Red Reading Hub

"A delight. Love it. Rhymes for inside, outside, quiet and loud, sitting and standing. With actions added for each one on every page. Love it." - Jo Bowers, Associate Dean, Cardiff Metropolitan University

"Rhymes that make you want to clap your hands and laugh out loud."   - Michael Morpurgo

"A truly MUST-HAVE for anyone spending time with young children. And forget the book’s blurb that mentions 'toddlers and babies', many of the sixteen original action rhymes inside will be appreciated by school-age children too. The rhymes are infectiously rhythmic and each one is accompanied by LET’S PLAY guidance on suggested actions. [A] wonderful collection, joyfully illustrated by Carolina Rabei." - Achuka

"This is a delightful book full of rhymes which are perfect for babies and toddlers. Each rhyme is beautifully illustrated. The writer has included useful ideas for engaging your child playfully with each of the rhymes...You will soon be adding new ideas of your own..." - Love My Books

"This is a lively and engaging collection of contemporary action rhymes to be chanted (or just recited) with actions for babies and toddlers; the suggested actions are detailed in neat inserts with each verse, no equipment required, just you and the child – and hands, feet and faces... Accompanying each rhyme are illustrations by Carolina Rabei. They are a perfect match. Her child-friendly images bounce, zoom, creep and bump off the pages filling the space with a lively visual experience. The colours are vibrant and textured – in tune with the immediacy of the words." - Books for Keeps
