Animal Music

Written by Julia Donaldson

Illustrated by Nick Sharratt

Books for Babies and Toddlers

LoveReading View on Animal Music

Clap and dance to the beat of Julia Donaldson’s lively and simple phrases which encourage the sounding out some of the important phonological sounds underpinning an introduction to reading. Different animals play a range of instruments so ‘Bulldogs blow high and low’ while ‘Crayfish croons catchy tunes’. The brightly coloured illustrations capture the exuberance of the text.

Animal Music Synopsis

There's harmony in the air when the animals get together to make music and put on a concert with a difference! Koala's playing his flute, Badger's bashing away on the drums and Squirrel's strumming on the guitar. Even the smallest toddler will enjoy the wonderfully silly animal antics in this book, so join in and sing and dance along - you've never been to a gig like it!

Trademark Julia Donaldson rhymes and rhythms accompanied by Nick Sharratt's mischievous and funny illustrations make this bright and playful book a sure winner. Now available as a sturdy board book -- perfect for younger readers. Perfect for reading out loud!
