The Lovereading4Kids comment

Age 0-5+ Giggle along to these wonderful rhymes whether you’re with your toddler in the nursery or the car. Full of action and noise it’s guaranteed to get kids engaged and stimulated to love poetry. Julia’s verse jumps off the page and Nick’s snazzy illustrations add to the fun.


Wriggle And Roar! by Julia Donaldson

Whenever I'm tired of being me, I swing around like a chimpanzee. Are you tired of being you? Here's a whole bookful of things you can do! There are rhymes to make you wriggle and giggle, shrug and sigh, snap like a crocodile and slither like a snake. Julia Donaldson's verse jumps off the page and Nick Sharratt's snazzy illustrations add to the fun.


"... a perfect read-aloud, giggle-along-to book by two of the most distictive creators of contemporary children's books." Publishing News

"This book will animate, engage and stimulate babies and have nursery classes jumping about with noisy enthusiasm." Sunday Times

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
