The Lovereading4Kids comment

A joyful collection of poems for young children by an author who is completely in tune with her audience! Julia Donaldson celebrates the delights of going to the park, walking the dog, pizza, riding a bike and sliding down the bannisters in poems that are just perfect for reading out loud. Nick Sharratt’s illustrations have never looked brighter or more appealing and make the poems zing off the page. Definitely one to add to the picture book shelf and to return to over and over. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Shuffle and Squelch by Julia Donaldson

Kick your boots off, everyone.

Summer's here and so's the sun.

Bright, bold and accessible, this collection of poems is packed full of noises and actions - perfect for joining in. There are counting rhymes and animal rhymes, rhymes to make you shuffle and squelch and clatter and patter, and rhymes to make you gallop like a horse or slide down the banister.

Julia Donaldson's verse jumps off the page and Nick Sharratt's snazzy illustrations add to the fun.
