Rhyming Stories II

When our children were little, they loved rhyming stories.  Some of the best sellers at the time were by Jez Alborough.  The children loved them and their Dad loved reading them.


Jez Alborough's illustrations are full of expression, you know just what the sheep and the goat and the frog are thinking about the silly duck.  And in the "Where's my Teddy" trilogy Eddie and his Mum go from being terrified  of the great big bear, to making friends with him.

We read:



  1. Where's my Teddy?
  2. It's the Bear
  3. My friend Bear
  4. Duck in the truck
  5. Fix-it Duck
  6. Captain Duck
