The Wonky Donkey / Craig Smith
This book is great fun. Very silly and bound to have the kids (adults too) in fits of laughter.
Try saying spunky, hanky-panky cranky stinky dinky lanky honky-tonky winky wonky donkey really really fast while keeping a straight face. Impossible!

Check out this clip of  author Craig Smith singing The Wonky Donkey.

Too Many Elephants In This House /  Ursula Dubosarsky
Eric has a problem, a jumbo problem. Eric has too many elephants in his house. Eric’s Mum says they have to go. But where will Eric put them?
Kids will love this silly, imaginative story.

A Silly song…

 “If You’re Silly and You Know It”

If you’re silly and you know it, wriggle your nose
If you’re silly and you know it, wriggle your nose
If you’re silly and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re silly and you know it, wriggle your nose

Stomp your feet // Shout hooray // Jump up and down

Silly elephant craft…

2 x different coloured card
2 x pegs
