Description

Red bus.
Red car, red bus.
Yellow car, red car, red bus.

This beautifully simple picture book introduces the concept of patterns and sequencing to the youngest child. With an ever-growing traffic queue and entertaining background storylines, this highly original book provides plenty to amuse young readers while also being very suitable for early years education. It could be used to introduce topics of patterns, colour and vehicles.
Susan Steggall is developing a name as an inventive and original author and illustrator. Her use of collage and colourful artwork is both distinctive and appealing. Rattle and Rap was praised and selected for Kirkus Reviews Best Books and shortlisted for Southampton's Favourite Book to Share 2009.
The very simple, repetitive text in this book makes it suitable for the youngest child, while the subtly developed back story will encourage young readers to go back and look at it again and again.

Praise for Rattle and Rap:
A journey to be savored again and again.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Though there are many train stories, the way in which the artwork and text interplay to tell the story makes this one a good pick for young audiences.”
