Toddle Waddle by Julia Donaldson

There's a hullabaloo at the seaside when a toddler takes his friends on a stroll to the end of the pier. There are buzzing bees, bicycle bells and a whole beachful of noisy fun. Even the smallest toddler will enjoy the wonderfully silly sounds in this book, so join in and waddle along - you've never been on a walk like it! The trademark Julia Donaldson rhymes and rhythms in this cumulative story are perfect to read aloud, and Nick Sharratt's mischievous and funny illustrations make this bright and playful book a sure winner. Just right for toddlers!
