From the author of Room on the Broom, follow-the-leader has never been so much fun! There’s a hullabaloo at the seaside when the wobbly toddler takes a walk and is soon joined by a joyful troop of human and animal friends. They wander happily along with a clip clop, hurry scurry, flip flop, toddle waddle, but where will they go and who else will they meet along the way? Jaunty rhymes and bright, bold pictures ensure that even the youngest child will love this simple, playful story, a wonderful introduction to onomatopoeia.
This picture book is about a young toddler taking his friends on a trip to the sea-side. The narrative of the book consists of repetitive action rhyming words. The pictures are also bold and bright which is very eye-catching for a young reader. In the very beginning of the book there is a huge picture of the toddler and in big letters, the words ‘toddle’ as that is the action the toddler makes when he walks. As the toddler walks, he picks up various people and animals to join him on his journey. This enables the child to become familiar with the surroundings of a beach, different animals and becoming familiar with action words.
