Join the morning chorus of clappy, clippy, cloppy, floppy, flappy sing-song and poem pong. All is shipshape with the crew of creatures that visit Squirrel Island. Dig deep into a wealth of stories, japes and verses with plenty of healthy vocab for both young and older. Drawings of 12 different animals, not all immediately recognisable. Find out what the boy on board is pointing at and how the tune goes to the following words: there are often things to do with things, instead of throwing them away hay-hay.
