Strangely I first red this to my little one when we were waiting to be seen in a&e as he'd had a bump. It was in the small collection of books available in the waiting room! My little one and I loved it so much I made a note of the name and bought it the next day! That was 3 years ago and we still read it now! Fantastic book!!

I think I enjoy this as much my daughter! The rhymes are interesting and unusual, almost like adult poetry in places, and have a nice beat to them, and the pictures are colourful with lots of detail that my daugther likes to pick out - spiders, a bike and lots of animals. There's a great page where you say "Bye bye" to all the animals, and she talks along as do this and we extend it to members of the family, Mummy, Daddy and brother!

Beautifully illustrated story for toddlers, featuring recurring bugs on each page and rhythmic rhymes. My 2 1/2 year old loves finding the animals, bouncing up and down to the rhythms and saying "Goodbye" to all the animals as the little girl leaves the jungle - "Goodbye rhino. Goodbye lemurs." and so on.
Amusing for the adults too!
