The Wonky Donkey by Craig Smith and Katz Cowley

Have you seen the video of the Scottish granny reading this? If not look at it straight away.  There has never been a better reason for buying a book.

This internet sensation has become a firm favourite for library storytimes.  It catches the attention with its hilarious storyline and cheeky illustrations. The children love doing the donkey sound effects and helping to recite the wonky donkey facts as the list gets longer and longer. It is a little like the “Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly” song (also fantastic) in that it is great for developing memory and sequencing skills.

As an adult reading it I challenge you not to laugh out loud. It is short and snappy and you may need to get used to it as it promises to be a bedtime story that could be requested again and again.
