This storybook is a feast for the ears as it provides many opportunities for the narrator to use punctuation, assonance, voices and actions if the story is to be read aloud in a class setting. It also introduces some more sophisticated adjectives such as 'dinky', 'nibble' and 'scamper'.
Furthermore, from an educative perspective, the book could be used to advance children in their 'understanding of the world', for example, animal habitats and what they need to survive.

Recommends it for: any child who loves good rhyming story
Oh to be a child again, I'm so jealous of the new generation of little people with their sparkling new Bratz dolls and glossy new fangled picture books with flaps and pockets.I'm always taking a sneaky peek at the latest toys in the Argos catalogues (just like I did as a child) and all the cute new children's books that are coming out these days.

This book is great for children to start to think about different animals and what habitat they come from. For very young children it will introduce them to some animals they may not know and you can explore the different sounds they make and where in the world they come from. Could be used for KS1 science when looking at habitats. #habitats #animals
