There's a commotion in the classroom as Goat and the other animals spend the day at playgroup. The musical instruments and the dressing up box are lots of fun, but – oh dear! – Goat gets into a muddle or two.
Even the smallest toddler will enjoy the wonderfully silly animal antics in this book – the ideal story for any child starting at, or already attending, a playgroup or nursery.
Trademark Julia Donaldson rhymes and rhythms are perfect to read aloud, and Nick Sharratt's mischievous and funny illustrations make the bright and playful Goat Goes to Playgroup a sure winner. Just right for toddlers!
Look out for more great books: Hippo Has a Hat, Animal Music, Toddle Waddle and Chocolate Mousse for Greedy Goose.
