'As I read through this book I could clearly picture a group of children, sat upon the classroom carpet at storytime, laughing, clapping and joining in. It's full of references to those things that loom large in the life of an infant - wobbly teeth, aliens, mini beasts, space rockets and playtime. There are group poems, poems to dance to, poems to shout and poems to sing. It's a lovely collection of easy but not always simple rhymes, many of which will definitely become favourites with the younger children they have been written for.'

Poetry Zone

'it's a book based around the imaginative life of the smallest children, with poems about the subjects that you'd expect – animals, friends and holidays – but also poems that make you want to move about or chant or sing that are about all sorts of other things (it's catching). These are short, simple, inviting and memorable poems which celebrate the wonder, variety and possibility of the world. Full of rhythm and rhyme, written to be read aloud, these are poems that children will love to listen to, to chant along with and that will inspire them to make up their own …It's the work of a poet who knows his audience well and never talks down to them.'
