These are animals is one of the most fun books I have read to a group of children in a while. It was great to see the children love the book as much as I did, which is why it is now one of my favourite go to books for Storytime sessions.
He is whimsical, magical, silly, imaginative and a whole lot mysterious, but most of all you know he’s got your back. Mr Bambuckle is the teacher everyone wants except for Miss Frost and Principle Sternblast.

Say Zoop! is a book like no other, Herve’ Tullet is unique in his approach to literacy and learning. This whimsical, colourful, interactive book will have your young child singing, SHOUTING, and whispering their way through it.
So what is up to? That is what we are left wondering when we get to the end of the book, but throughout the story the children’s imagination is fed and inspired. From pages with almost nothing on a it to busy pages with baboons and giraffes our goal is to think about what is on top of the cheeky ladder.
