With this Big Book you can:-

Take the rhythms in the poems to develop percussion work - the poem is read on the CD and initial percussion examples are featured. Creative music-making activities included for each poem help to address the requirements of the composition strand of the National Curriculum for Music.

From the beautifully illustrated pictures, children can explore different sounds from the images they see and develop their music-making composition skills.

Alternatively, children can develop art or literacy work based on the images and sounds they have seen and heard.

The poems can also be used as the basis of some more creative writing!
