Rumble Tumble


This is a lovely story about a bear, his sandwich, an inconveniently-placed rock, and a very bumpy journey down a hill. It’s a riotously enjoyable adventure that has been developed and tested by Ben Newman with his own preschool children.

The bear is looking forward to eating his yummy sandwich, but there’s a huge BUMP! Oh no, he has tripped on a rock. Then there’s a big FLUMP! He starts tumbling down the hill, and into a bunch of unsuspecting woodland animals.  Children will be delighted to turn the special cut-away pages and enjoy the rhythmic, onomatopoeic words in this joyful and boisterous story.  It is perfect for reading aloud and sharing with pre-school children.  A deceptively simple story about unexpected friendships, sharing and adventure!
