Book review: Tanka Tanka Skunk

This is most definitely my favourite book for Eden at the moment, it's incredibly fun and lively and great for toddlers with so much energy!

We first came across Tanka Tanka Skunk by Steve Webb in the library a few months ago, and we like it so much I've recently bought us our own copy. It introduces rhyme and rhythm through the learning of the names of bold and colourful animals leaping across each page. You'll meet 'Lemurs, Llamas, Llamas, Lemurs... Caterpillars, big Gorillas and a Yakety, Yakety, Yak'.

Eden has always appreciated music, and this book nicely compliments her musical instrument basket. We get her drums out and bang along to the beat of the book. I can imagine it would be just as good for older children learning to read, improving their literacy skills as the rhythm helps break down syllables in the words.

It's well worth a trip to your local library to get a copy of this LOUD but very fun book!
