Buy The Drum

The wonderful team at Tales on Moon Lane, together with Matthew Tobin, Senior Lecturer in English & Children’s Lit. at Oxford Brookes University, have recommended our picture book The Drum as a guided reading book for children at a nursery level! They believe that ‘choosing the right text is essential for developing reading comprehension. A multi-layered text will provide opportunities for pupils to access it in different ways and for multiple interpretations and reflections.’ We’re honoured that The Drum has been selected as a book that will help young students learn and develop their comprehension!

The Drum alongside other recommended guided reading books for nursery level

The Drum is a fun picture book filled with song, rhythm and dance, which encourages children to clap their hands, stomp their feet and move to the beat! Written by award-winning picture book author and artist Ken Wilson-Max, and illustrated by Catell Ronca, The Drum is the first book in Tiny Owl’s new Children. Music. Life. series. Music helps the physical, emotional, and intellectual development of babies as well as strengthening cognitive and sensory development, and so this book is perfect for getting young children dancing and moving!
