Review of Twenty-Four Robbers

This is a wonderful version of a traditional skipping rhyme. Twenty-four robbers return to the same house again and again, and are taught that sharing is better than stealing. Each visit from the boisterous robbers leaves the reader eager to know what they will take next.

The catchy rhythm and rhyme of this book give it an exciting pace, making it perfect for reading aloud with children. The repetition and segmenting of key words also makes it ideal for beginner readers. Each page is filled with bold, colourful and detailed illustrations depicting the rhyme as it moves along. Get children to join in with this story and count the twenty-four robbers, which appear on every page.
