I loved this book! My son is a little young for it at the moment but he likes to hear me read out the poems. A good one to take to the beach in summer!

This was one of the first books we read with my daughter, we love the rhymes and it got us hooked on Giles Andreae as an author with our favourite being Giraffes can't dance.

My daughter and I love this book. I love the rhyme that runs through the book, very enjoyable to read as a parent and my daughter especially likes looking for the starfish on each page as well as learning about all the different animals. Educational and fun at the same time.
