This is a true celebration of the joys of life and the changeable English weather in summer. A phonic frolic of onomatopoeia, word play, rhythm and rhyme and a profusion of alliteration as well, it’s just the thing to foster a delight in language play and in the natural world. Fluffy chicks, fuzzy bees and cuddly kittens cavort across a flower decorated brown paper background.
This is a book that simply cries out to be performed: chant it, add your own musical accompaniment, dance it or do all three. There is lots of potential too for exploring Cathy MacLennan’s decorative illustrative style and then letting young children experiment with paints for themselves. All in all, they’ll just love it.
