Kicking off our a Book a Day series on Rainy Day Mum is Snug as a Bug by Tamsyn Murray and illustrated by Judi Abbot. Tackling one of the many hurdles during the day that you face with a toddler getting them to put on their clothes to leave the house especially when it’s cold weather.
So how does the mum go about it – with two fantastic counting rhymes, combing numbers and rhyming words this really makes J and T chuckle.
Judi Abbot creates wonderfully coloured illustrations that depict the various different ways in which the little boy George will be warm and then how cold he we will be when he removes those cold weather clothes.
Would you prefer to be as snug as a bug rolled up in a rug? Like two cosy bats in thick woolly hats? As hot as three pigs in big purple wigs? Or …Would you prefer to be like ten sneezy kittens without any mittens? Like nine frozen frogs in huge wooden clogs? As cool as eight bees on miniature skis? George has to decide for himself on a day out at the park with Mum. This funny book of crazy combinations is guaranteed to make kids laugh.
