Twenty-four robbers display their cooking talents in this retelling of the traditional skipping rhyme.

What do they need and what is it for? Kindness and generosity show the robbers that stealing is not the only way, and teaches them the value of sharing.

Count twenty-four robbers on each spread, and join in the shouting!

The illustrations in this book are a little messy, but they're bright and colorful, and the pattern of the story is not to be missed.So, of course, if you're a teacher you can move on from this book by teaching the jump rope rhyme to the kids. Always good to get them moving, makes things stick in the mind, doesn't it? (Well, it's just fun.)
