Unlike the nursery rhyme tapes we never got bored of this one. Each animal in the jungle has its own rhyme and melody. For instance... The ravenous rhino Is big, strong and tough, But his skin is all baggy and flappy, Which means that there's plenty Of room for his lunch, And that makes him terribly happy. The B-side has the poems without the music, followed by the music without the poems. You are invited to guess which song belongs to which animal. Fantastic for car journeys with 0 to 5 year olds. Available from Amazon on-line booksellers at http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/1843620375/chi--21 ____________________________________________________________ Events for Children ------------------- Little Dippers Underwater Swimming Course Designed to teach your baby to love the water, and teach even the youngest water safety techniques.
