Parents in Touch review I Will Not Wear Pink

July 15, 2016

"Plunkett has been invited to a party by Priscilla - but he must wear pink. Never, he says. Riotous rhyming text sees Plunkett in all sorts of pink... and finally he discovers that there is one shade of pink that is just perfect. Happily, Priscilla agrees with Plunkett and the two pigs fly happily away... all in pink! Just be yourself, and all will be perfect, is the theme of this entertaining story."

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. 

- Jo Bowers, Associate Dean, Cardiff Metropolitan University

 

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.

We do love this book, and I am about to Face Time with a 3-year old...which one shall I choose? Big Green Crocodile.
