Synopsis

The Journey Home from Grandpa's by Jemima Lumley

Hop in the car and watch all that whizzes past the window as you head for home. You'll find all kinds of things to look at as you join in the catchy singalong song! This action-packed book is ideal for teaching different colours and types of transportation and for developing map-reading skills. Latest in the popular series of Barefoot books with free singalong CDs - perfect for fans of all-time favourite The Animal Boogie (PB with CD: 1-905236-22-0) with over 250,000 copies sold worldwide! It pairs nicely with the best-selling transport title, We All Go Travelling By (PB with CD: 1-84148-880-1) - over 50,000 copies sold! The strong use of rhythm and repetition builds listening and reading skills.
