Tanka Tanka Skunk! Review

Rhyming has never been so much fun as in Steve Webb's bold, new picture book, which encourages children to read aloud, following the easy and catchy rhythm of the text.

"Skunka Tanka
Skunka Tanka
Tanka Tanka Skunk!
They've got the beat, and so do their friends."

"Meet Tanka and his friend, Skunk. When you say their names together, they sound like drums!"

Steve Webb's innovative and visually stunning picture book introduces young readers to simple rhythms with this riot of shout-out-loud words and cavorting animals. TANKA TANKA SKUNK! makes reading tons of fun as the text and the illustrations leap and dance across the pages.

    What a great book for teaching children about syllabbles! I would like to read this while clapping the sylabbles but the problem will be holding the book! I would be fun to have this on a chart....

    More of a picture book than a picturebook, Webb has written here something excellent - a book that asks you to get up and dance to the beat of the poem. Not only is it PERFECT for anyone wanting to ex...
