Hey little bug - how do you hug - or cuddle or kiss your mum or sis - with all those arms and legs and things - and wiggly bits and wobbly wings? Spotty ladybirds, crawly caterpillars, show-offy butterflies; cats, dinosaurs, bears; first day at school, the naughty step, show and tell...There are poems about all of these and more in this delightful collection of verse for young children. Perfect for Early Years and Infant classrooms, and for older children too, these poems are fresh, funny and brilliant for reading aloud.
