The Lovereading4Kids comment

This book takes as its inspiration the much-loved song ‘Here we go round the mulberry bush’. Added to those words are some wonderful lyrics to be sung in the same rhythm with lots of animal noises and actions, too. It’s a book that invites lots of high energy enjoyment indoors or outdoors (round a mulberry bush, if you have one!), a book that can be shared with young children to talk about habitats around the world from the rainforest and the savannah to the arctic and the wetlands. A book to treasure and return to time and time again as the big and bold, wild and wacky drawings coupled with the rhythmical text will delight and surprise every time.

This is the February selection for the Oxford University Press Centenary Promotion

Synopsis

Whoosh Around The Mulberry Bush by Jan Ormerod

Starts with children dancing round the mulberry bush and then sets off around the world to see all sorts of animal capers. This text can be sung to the rhythm of "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush". It aims to provide children the opportunity to learn something of world habitats and wildlife.

About the Author

Jan Ormerod

Jan Ormerod (1946 - 2013) grew up in the fifties, in a series of small towns in Western Australia, with her three older sisters. As a child she drew constantly and compulsively, inspired by beautifully drawn schoolgirl annuals from England and secretly acquired American comics that were forbidden by her parents.

Her books have largely been a celebration and savouring of the positive experience of parenthood she truly had not anticipated–the fun, the warmth, and the love. Jan was acutely aware that picture books are almost always shared by the child and a caring adult.

She published more than 50 picture books in her lifetime, won many honours and awards, and her work is published in more than 20 countries.
