Square Eyes

Panda and his friends sit inside on the couch all day, glued to the TV screen or multi-screening with tablets too, so in this fun song, singer/songwriter Smith encourages them to get up, get outdoors and exercise!

Willbee the Bumblebee

A catchy song with endearing illustrations that will have you buzzing! And as Willbee flew away, he did not stop, his jersey unravelled from the bottom to the top, and when he realised this, he lost his hum...He was showing the whole garden his bare bum! Well, with no jersey and being late in the day, Willbee was so cold he couldn't fly away…


The Wonky Donkey

I was walking down the road and I saw . . . A donkey, Hee Haw! And he only had three legs! He was a wonky donkey. Children will be in fits of laughter with this perfect read-aloud tale of an endearing donkey. By the books final page, readers end up with a spunky, hanky-panky, cranky, stinky, dinky, lanky, honky-tonky, winky wonky, donkey! There is much fun to be had by listening to the song and trying to predict the new word for each clue given.
