A trip down nostalgia lane with the elephant and the bad baby (and my 14 month old bad baby)
on 4 April 2016
Excellent book for my friend's daughter - I had this when I was younger, in fact I may, ahem, still have it! My 14 month old likes it too as I'm just beginning the process of reading it to him, as I had it read to me! The repetitive 'rumpata rumpata rumpata all down the road' is great fun to do with a child and they get really involved in the book. You can exaggerate the list of people chasing after the elephant and the bad baby as it gets longer. I also aim to use this book as my Grandpa did with me, and get my son to point out things such as 'where are the oranges?' and 'can you see the jar with the stripey sweets in?'; it may be a little old fashioned now, but for nostalgia I love this book and I don't think I will EVER grow tired of it, it conjures up fab memories for me, and hopefully will do for my little boy in the future too.
