There's lots of phoneme fun to be had with the anarchic chorus of the Woody Guthrie song Howdi do!, (Walker Books pound;9.99, illustrated here):
"Howjee, heejee, hijee, hojee, Howdi do, sir, doodle-doo.
Howdi doosle, doodle-doozie, Howdi do, howdi do.
Howjee, hojee, heejee, hijee, Howdi do!" Vladimir Radunsky's collage illustrations are dazingly bright and the page design is superb. This joyous picture book is just what is needed at the start of a new school year for Reception up.
