The Lovereading4Kids comment

Clap and dance to the beat of Julia Donaldson’s lively and simple phrases which encourage the sounding out some of the important phonological sounds underpinning an introduction to reading. Different animals play a range of instruments so ‘Bulldogs blow high and low’ while ‘Crayfish croons catchy tunes’. The brightly coloured illustrations capture the exuberance of the text.

Synopsis

Animal Music by Julia Donaldson

Swing and sway! Sing and play! Stay and dance the night away!

There's harmony in the air when the animals get together for a concert with a difference! Koala's playing his flute, Badger's bashing away on the drums and Squirrel's strumming on the guitar. Sing and dance along -- you've never seen a show like it! With trademark Julia Donaldson rhyming text and NIck Sharratt's bold, funny illustrations, children will love this bright and playful book.
