it was amazing

Recommended for: storytime readers
read count: many

A very old, classic storytime book which is a great read aloud! It is a bit long, so you may want to save this for your slightly older group - maybe the 3-5 year olds, rather than your 2-4 year olds. And, be sure to practice this one!! Repeating the name of the elder son (Tikki Tikki Tembo No Sarembo Cheri Berri Ruchi Pip Perri Pembo) is no easy task if you haven't practiced. I also do the actions - going up and down the ladder, blowing in and out the air, etc. I find the kids love this one and the parents admire my courage!! I love to do an Asian theme or even a Chinese New Year celebration and use this one as my centerpiece.
It is a lot of fun!
