Wriggle and Roar!  In Payal Mehta’s words (she has 4 books in the series and highly recommends them as her kids keep asking her to read them over and over again!):

An awesome book of short rhymes with amazing colorful pictures and pages. Written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Nick Sharratt, it’s a smash out hit! It has some gems like ‘How does your garden grow, Handy Work, Animal Voices’ to name a few which are funny, informative and entertaining.

Nick Sharratt and Katrina Charman have a very popular series called NEW NURSERY RHYMES which is a riot and is to be sung out in tunes of nursery rhymes. CAR, CAR, TRUCK, JEEP is a huge bestseller with our members – both kids and parents!

There is an interesting series called YOU CHOOSE by Pippa Goodhart and Nick Sharratt which is for 5-8 years which allows the reader to choose different scenarios that create different kinds of endings!
