Ten in the Bed by Penny Dale


Ten in the Bed by Penny Dale

With ten in the bed, it's a bit of a squeeze! Roll over, roll over! But the little one gets cold all alone, and soon all ten are snuggled up and fast asleep. This famous rhyme is of interest to children who enjoy shouting out the crash, thud and bump noises!


Very young children will love exploring the detailed pictures and sounding the different noises each animal makes when falling out of the bed. Practical Parenting
