Boom Baby Boom Boom by Margaret Mahy

When Mama tells Baby that she's made a lovely lunch for him, she doesn't know that the animals are listening at the window. And they are much hungrier than Baby. While Mama bangs on her drums - boom-biddy-boom-biddy-boom-boom-boom - the yellow cat, the brown dog, the red rooster, the black-faced sheep and the brown-and-white cow each eats a titbit thrown on the floor by Baby. Good Baby gets a banana for pudding and, this time, he eats it all up. Boom-biddy-boom-biddy-yum-yum-yum!


Children will love joining in the story as the animals enter one by one to gobble up the baby's lunch.

Parents in Touch Full on onomatopoeia, that children will love to join in with
