Julia Donaldson does an excellent job on writing this creative story book. The first time I read the story, I initially felt it was a very long read for children as I thought it was long myself and repetitive but upon reading it a second, third time, I realised I had not fully appreciated how good the storybook was. Complete with rhyme and repitition it captured my attention and the children to whom I was reading to. The use of animals was a good idea as children were able to point out different animals that they came accross throughout the book, creating a sense of excitement. Use of synonyms such as 'Big and little' help children to begin to understand opposites of words, a good literacy aspect of children's learning. Ideally, the book is for 3-7 year olds, but is enjoyed by many, a good must have within any home or classroom.
