This is a lovely book for infants because it has a rhythmical structure all throughout the story. It can be used to count the animals, go over colours and the repeated phrases.
I remember a lovely workshop at teacher training college in which we learnt how to exploit this text in the infant education classroom. However, you may find many ready made lesson plans with it! You can start by colouring the story. Click here.
In this video you can hear the author singing the story.
