Rediscovery

I loved 'Tikki Tikki Tembo' as a child. I bought a copy for the Doctor this week. It's such a fun book to read together, with such a fun rhythm, and great illustrations.

Do you remember this book from your childhood?

I can still remember the day my pre-school teacher ripped this one out to read to us. It is still as wonderful as ever.

I Love it too! I read it to my kinder kids every year, and Ping as well. They promote some excellent conversations with children.
I love exposing children to interesting language and ideas. New is definately not always better!
