A Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson

a squash and a squeeze

I have previously blogged about two of Julia Donaldson’s books and now Samantha has found a new favourite among her books!

A Squash and a Squeeze is about a little old lady who feels that her house is too small. She consults a wise old man and he gives her some strange instructions, which she respectfully obeys. The result is  really quite hilarious, magnified by Axel Scheffler’s fantastic illustrations.

As Samantha is starting to name animals now, this book is perfect for her as there are 4 of them involved in the story – a hen, a goat, a pig and a cow. The book is written in Julia Donaldson’s usual rhyming and well paced style, with some repetition of text which the children will pick up and read after you in no time!
