Popular children’s author-illustrator Andréa Prior returns with her second charming collection of rhymes, poems, rhythm and wordplay to delight children’s imaginations. In A Piddle of Puppies
, Andréa leads readers through the weird and wonderful names for groups of animals.
Children of 5-9 years will be enchanted to read about these unusual sounding names, such as a mischief of mice, a crossing of zebras, a shiver of sharks and a piddle of puppies! With engaging questions and fascinating facts at the end of each rhyme, it is a perfect way to learn about animals and their behaviours.
The poems are accompanied by humorous and colourful illustrations hand drawn by Andréa. She also uses word patterns and tongue twisters to inspire young readers’ imaginations and help with their reading skills, which worked so well at engaging children in her first book, A Parcel of Pigs.
