Little Hare 2011. ISBN 9781921714429.
'This itsy-bitsy kitten likes to pounce and jump.
That itsy-bitsy panda goes bumpity-bump'
This is a delightful introduction to the world of baby animals for the very young, with all sorts of possibilities for acting the parts. And like its companion, Itsy-Bitsy Babies, it has a delightful message to wrap it up. I love the baby tigers curled up with Mother Zebra. The rhyme and rhythm of the language and the clear pictures in subtle colours are perfect partners. Simple, yet sophisticated - it's a winner.
