Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the creators of Giraffes Can't Dance, Down By the Cool of the Pool is a sure-fire hit with fun, rhyming text, and zany illustrations.

There's flipping and flopping, splishing and splashing, wiggling and waggling down by the cool of the pool. Frog, Duck, Horse, Pig, and the rest of the gang dance and sing their way through this wacky, watery wonderful story told with a catchy rhyming text and bold, vibrant illustrations. The fun is positively infectious, and you just may find yourself dancing and singing along with Frog and his frolicking friends. Children will delight in this rollicking farmyard romp, an adventure in musical activity--perfect for the nonstop toddler.

Synopsis:

Frog, Duck, Horse, and Pig dance and sing their way through this wacky story with rhyming text and vibrant full-color illustrations.

Tony Mitton and Guy Parker-Rees books are wonderful. Down by the Cool of the Pool was our 4th purchase and we were not disappointed. They are fun books with silly rhymes. My twins love the illustrations. Perfect for a boy or girl. I never hesitate to give these as a gift. We also own the entire Amazing Machines collection and love those too.
