Lively Elizabeth by Mara Bergman


Lively Elizabeth by Mara Bergman

Elizabeth is a lively little girl. She loves stomping around, making a racket and creating an awful kerfuffle. One day she does the thing that she knows she should never do: she pushes Joe Fitzhugh. Joe tumbles into Jonny, who knocks into another child, and on and on and on. Oh dear, Elizabeth! What have you done?


Energetic and funny cautionary tale Daily Echo The poem flows beautifully - almost reminiscent of Hilaire Belloc with its particular rhythm, and of course featuring a naughty child. The Bookbag Energetic and funny. Bournemouth Daily Echo This is a perfect nursery tale... The illustrations are fun and stuffed full of detail, and the fabulous rhyming text has such great pace, tumbling from page to page - just like the children. Nursery World The very essence of childhood... an elegant picturebook. School Librarian
