LoveReading View on Wiggly Wiggly Playtime Rhymes

Featuring a selection of rhymes for the very young adapted from Michael Rosen and Chris Riddell’s award-winning A Great Big Cuddle, Wiggly Wiggly is a tour de force of catchy rhythms and bouncy beats, cheerful pictures and cheeky characters. Each of the nine rhymes are made to be read aloud, made to encourage the very littlest to join in with the sounds, the words, the actions (wriggling, bouncing, sloshing, finger walking). The verses will hold their appeal no matter how many times you have to read them (hundreds), while the draughtsmanship and vitality of Chris Riddell’s illustrations takes the breath away with each turn of the page.  They’re never too young for poetry and this is an absolute nursery must-have.

Wiggly Wiggly Playtime Rhymes Synopsis

Join a band of mischievous monkeys, tigers, lions, elephants and bears as they tippy-tap, boing-boing, wiggle-wiggle and wave hello - and goodbye! The most energetic poems from the award-winning anthology A Great Big Cuddle have found the perfect new home in this friendly format. Michael Rosen has adapted his rhymes so that even the very littlest readers can join in; Chris Riddell's vibrant, extraordinary pictures fizz off the page. Pairing two of the biggest names in the world of children's books, Wiggly Wiggly is a small book that contains a lot of action!
