The greatest ever collection of action songs for children. Everything from the sizzling Ten fat sausages to the hilarious No laugh race with all manner of toe tapping, hand clapping, nose wiggling, wriggling and giggling in between. Every early years setting and primary school should have one. The collection is in the familiar A&C Black songbook format with sturdy wire-o binding to keep the book open at the song you're singing. Each song has a simple piano accompaniment and guitar chords and the words are brought to life by illustrator David McKee's wonderfully comical little people, performing all the actions to show you how. And there are recordings of all the songs with backing tracks available on CD as well.
