Zany, imaginative, hilarious.
Elias Zapple's Rhymes from the Cabbage Patch - though of course I'm utterly unbiased. Equally zany, though for an older age group.
A good sense of rhythm and pacing.
And you didn't think it would be possible...
Yes, if they had little children. This is a well-read version of these fun poems, with lots of great sound repetitions for little ones learning to speak. They can also ask for it over and over again without a parent having to repeatedly read the book out themselves, so I can see this audio book becoming a firm favourite with both little kids and their parents.
I love the poem about a Purple Polka Dot Thing most, but all of these poems are highly imaginative and visual.
Again, I think my favourite scene is the discovery of the Purple Polka Dot Thing!
It made me smile throughout, as all the poems are fun and upbeat.
The first audio book I've listened to in a long time, and I really enjoyed the experience.
