Playgroup has begun. Time to have some fun. A comforting story for any child starting at, or already attending, a playgroup. Perfect for reading aloud, even the youngest toddler will enjoy Goat's antics.


Synopsis

Goat Goes to Playgroup by Julia Donaldson

There's a commotion in the classroom as Goat and the other animals spend the day at playgroup. The musical instruments and the dressing up box are lots of fun, but oh dear! Goat gets into a muddle or two. Luckily, it's not long before everything is all better.

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

"the perfect way to tire out lively toddlers… It’s timeless, irresistible and will encourage our youngest readers to be book-lovers for ever." The Bookseller

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
