Incy Wincy Spider took a while to grow on me at first as it is set out in the rhyming pattern of the the nursery rhyme, but with different words/ lyrics. It means that you can’t just read it, you almost have to sing it! But that makes a great 5-a-day book because it helps your child to learn it by heart more easily. This book has the added appeal of raised, tactile sparkly details on the spider web thread on each page which Cakie loves to trace her finger along.
This is new to me and I LOVE it! Just like all of the other wonderful poem collections that these two have put together (Commotion in the Ocean, Rumble in the Jungle etc) the rhymes are funny, short, punchy and brilliant! It is easy for your child to learn the key rhyming words and fill in the gaps as you read. And it covers a great, diverse range of creepy-crawlies too! Perfect.
Ahh, the one and only classic caterpillar story! We have chosen this one a few times to feature in our 5 for the week, and now it is one of Pop’s favourites for poking her fingers into. It is lovely for discussing life cycles and metamorphosis.
