Humpty Dumpty by Annie Kubler


Humpty Dumpty by Annie Kubler

This award winning series has been specifically designed for babies. A great introduction to books through well-known nursery rhymes and interactive text. Singing songs and rhymes is the perfect way to bond with your baby and share quality time. It also aids language development by introducing them to the natural sounds and patterns of speech. Combining these with actions also stimulates the brain and helps muscle development.


The action takes place within the context of pretend play, with a child and a toy Humpty on a wall of pillows; all the king's horses take the form of hobby horses, and the king himself and his men have clearly been raiding the dress-up chest. Together with Hop a Little, Jump a Little!, Pat-a-Cake, and Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat, this is a splendid, slightly larger-than-usual contribution that is sure to see many repeated readings.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk
