Baby and Toddlers. Hardback and CD Audio. Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson’s third wonderful song book is packed full of the words and music for a host of songs including one for the Gruffalo’s Child to sing a part on their own – very suitable for children – and an excellent song for the Stick Man, another of Donaldson/ Scheffler’s creations. All the songs are fully illustrated with their well loved characters while the accompanying CD helps everyone to sing along.


The Gruffalo's Child Song and Other Songs by Julia Donaldson

The Gruffalo's Child returns with her very own song to introduce a truly monster musical session! As well as being the UK's most successful picture book author and the 2011-2013 Children's Laureate, Julia Donaldson is a gifted songwriter for children. This volume contains nine of her best-loved songs, including The Gruffalo's Child, Nut Tree and The World Inside a Book, as well as a number of other fun-filled action songs, all of which have been wonderfully illustrated by Axel Scheffler. Each score includes piano accompaniment and guitar chords.

The songs will be familiar to anyone who has heard them on TV or radio, or enjoyed one of Julia's hugely popular live performances. Now everyone can sing along!
