The Lovereading4Kids comment

Julia Donaldson was writing lively, irresistible songs for children even before she was writing her much-loved books, and 23 of those songs are collected in this lovely book. Lots of the subjects will be familiar to children – there’s a song based on The Hare and the Tortoise for example, and a number that accompany some of her best-loved books including The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom and The Snail and the Whale. Illustrations throughout are by her long-time collaborator Axel Scheffler, making this wonderful to look at too. And there’s a CD of Julia performing the songs so that we can all join in. A treasury indeed that will provide hours of happy reading, listening and singing! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

A Treasury of Songs by Julia Donaldson

As well as being the UK's most successful picture book author, Julia Donaldson is a gifted songwriter for children. A Treasury of Songs contains over twenty of her songs, including fun-filled action rhymes, Aesop's fables, and songs based on Julia Donaldson's best-loved picture books, from Room on the Broom to The Gruffalo.

This beautifully produced songbook treasury is illustrated throughout with Axel Scheffler's warm and wonderful artwork, and comes with a CD of all the songs performed by Julia herself, which will be familiar to anyone who has heard them on TV or radio or enjoyed one of Julia's live performances.

With a shiny foiled jacket, luxury extra-thick paper and a foreword by the author, this is the perfect gift for all fans of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.
