LoveReading View on A Treasury of Songs

Julia Donaldson was writing lively, irresistible songs for children even before she was writing her much-loved books, and 23 of those songs are collected in this lovely book. Lots of the subjects will be familiar to children – there’s a song based on The Hare and the Tortoise for example, and a number that accompany some of her best-loved books including The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom and The Snail and the Whale. Illustrations throughout are by her long-time collaborator Axel Scheffler, making this wonderful to look at too.  And there’s a CD of Julia performing the songs so that we can all join in.  A treasury indeed that will provide hours of happy reading, listening and singing! ~ Andrea Reece

A Treasury of Songs Synopsis

As well as being the UK's most successful picture book author, Julia Donaldson is a gifted songwriter for children. A Treasury of Songs contains over twenty of her songs, including fun-filled action rhymes, Aesop's fables, and songs based on Julia Donaldson's best-loved picture books, from Room on the Broom to The Gruffalo. This beautifully produced songbook treasury is illustrated throughout with Axel Scheffler's warm and wonderful artwork, and comes with a CD of all the songs performed by Julia herself, which will be familiar to anyone who has heard them on TV or radio or enjoyed one of Julia's live performances. Now in paperback with a thick, foiled cover The Treasury of Songs will become a firm favourite on every child's shelf.
