Playgroup has begun. Time to have some fun.

There's a commotion in the classroom as Goat and the other animals spend the day at playgroup.

Trademark Julia Donaldson rhymes and rhythms accompanied by Nick Sharratt’s mischievous and funny illustrations make this board book a sure winner. Even the youngest toddler will enjoy Goat's antics!

This reassuring story is perfect reading for any child beginning, or already attending, a nursery or playschool.

Goat Goes To Playgroup

by

Julia Donaldson

Illustrated by Nick Sharratt

Julia Donaldson sets to work to reassure newcomers to playgroups everywhere in this picture book with a simple rhyming text.

Through the story of Goat's active day, we are able to share the experience of the smallest children starting playgroup or nursery, suddenly encountering an environment with unfamiliar boundaries – where play is plentiful but controlled, and where we also occasionally have embarrassing moments like failing to make the toilet in time. Goat hasn’t yet fitted into this regime, and would often rather be doing something else - so when it comes to circle time he would rather be on the climbing frame!

Nick Sharratt’s bright, bold illustrations add immeasurably to the text, prompting plenty of conversations, offering up lots of details to explore, and carefully capturing a realistic playgroup setting. The final spread in which Goat's Mum arrives at the end of the day will be immensely reassuring for all.

Nick liked drawing from an early age. 'When I was nine,' he says, 'a picture that I'd drawn at school was pinned up in the hall, and the husband of one of the teachers saw it and offered me five pounds to do a similar picture for him. That's when I decided I was going to be a professional artist one day! I nearly always drew in felt tip pens then, and I liked drawing big crowd scenes. I'd start in the bottom left-hand corner of the paper and just let the picture grow, telling myself stories about each of the characters in turn as I drew them.'
