Overview

Twenty-four robbers display their cooking talents in this retelling of the traditional skipping rhyme. In Audrey Wood's joyful celebration of this traditional skipping rhyme, twenty-four robbers return to the same house again and again. What do they need and what is it for? Kindness and generosity show the robbers that stealing is not the only way, and teaches them the value of sharing. Count twenty-four robbers on each spread, and join in the shouting!

The illustrations in this book are a little messy, but they're bright and colorful, and the pattern of the story is not to be missed.So, of course, if you're a teacher you can move on from this book by teaching the jump rope rhyme to the kids. Always good to get them moving, makes things stick in the mind, doesn't it? (Well, it's just fun.)

This book is still one of my favorite's! I just had to find this book and read it to my daughter, we both know all of the words by heart. It is a short, but very fun story. I am sure any child will enjoy this.
