A new and original rhyme action book to help creative play with babies and toddlers.
Sixteen original play-rhymes, devised and tested to entertain the very young, but also to help develop vital cognitive skills and prevent dyslexia. They cover the events of a child's day from breakfast to bedtime, on themes like animals, bees, crocodiles, tractors, and many more.
From Reviews of Big Green Crocodile...
A truly MUST-HAVE for anyone spending time with young children. And forget the book's blurb that mentions 'toddlers and babies', many of the sixteen original action rhymes inside will be appreciated by school-age children too. The rhymes are infectiously rhythmic and each one is accompanied by LET'S PLAY guidance on suggested actions. [A] wonderful collection, joyfully illustrated by Carolina Rabei.
Rhymes that make you want to clap your hands and laugh out loud
- Michael Morpurgo
A delight. Love it. Rhymes for inside, outside, quiet and loud, sitting and standing. With actions added for each one on every page. Love it.

Whether your children are babies, soon to start reading at school, or somewhere in between, this is for you. Caroline Rabei's wonderful illustrations showing enthusiastic young child participants in all the action make this an even more delightful sharing experience for both children and adults.
