Review: Little Rhymes for Little People by John Stewart Westlake & illustrated by Sophie Scahill

*Copy from publicist for review *

Little Rhymes for Little People by Australian writer John Stewart Westlake contains 21 rhymes beautifully illustrated by the talented Sophie Scahill and is suitable for readers aged between 3-7 years of age.

Each rhyme is about a different kind of animal and their behaviour, for instance: possum, piglet, seal, elephant and giraffe, just to name a few. 

My favourite illustration was of the giant tortoise in the rhyme called Walking Slowly. There are a few words that will challenge kids in these rhymes that read more like poetry than the snappy and sing song rhythms of a Dr. Seuss poem.

Little Rhymes for Little People by John Stewart Westlake is a charming little read for youngsters and a great stocking stuffer this Christmas.

My rating = ***
