Written by Jill Eggleton

A collection of 10 fun, ridiculous poems aimed at the four- to five-year old.

"There is no question that poetry’s rhymes and rhythms attract young children and help them to develop a love of language.

Developing a sensitivity to rhyme helps children progress in literacy. Listening to and learning rhymes lays the foundation for reading and spelling.

Rhymes and poems extend and enrich children’s vocabulary and introduces them to the idea of a narrative, taking them into an imaginative world.

Humorous poems and ridiculous rhymes will ‘hook’ children in and help them catch the rhythm of language and the power of words." —Jill Eggleton
