June Give away: 3 copies of ‘There’s a Goat in My Coat’ to be won (closed)


  1. I don’t know most of them because I’m not a native English speaker, but I picked thisone: Running Out the Door Socks.

  2. The PSST CD sounds fantastic – shame we’re not in Victoria. Looks like a very comprehensive list – I don’t know track number 16 – Wibbleton to Wobbleton, but would love to hear it!! Hope other states follow Victoria and SA’s great lead.

  3. * Reading Tip – I have never heard of this Rhyme..

    • Hi Anne-Maree. This CD is wonderful because as well as including a range of classic and new rhymes you will also hear little reading tips throughout the CD.

  4. I’ve never heard of Wibbleton to Wobbleton. Is this a rhyme or a chant?

    • A chant. One of those ones you can say to your baby while they’re bouncing on your knee! :)

    I haven’t heard of five fat peas, but would love to hear it!!

  7. Big smile on my face as we know most of those here! However shadow was one I hadn’t heard of :D

  8. I haven’t heard of track #26 – Yellow Butterfly. I work in early intervention, and we have a Vietnamese bilingual worker – I’ll have to ask her if she has heard of it before.

  9. I have never heard of ‘Hopping Song’.
    I’ll keep my fingers and toes crossed for this comp :)

    • Yes, good luck indeed because you can find this rhyme in ‘There’s A Goat in My Coat’

    Never heard of Hopping Song, unless it goes by another name too perhaps?

    • No, it’s a new one! It actually comes from this book that we’re giving away. Good luck then.

      • I haven’t heard of Hopping Song. Looking forward to picking this up from our local library for my son Jasper who has recently discovered the joy of singing.

  11. 18. Running Out The Door Socks (sounds amusing though)

  12. I’m clearly not up with my nursery rhymes as there are lots I don’t know, or at least don’t know the names of them. Running out the door socks is just one of them.

    • Not at all Melissa. Many of the rhymes on the CD are new and are taken from this book we are giving away. Good luck to you.

  13. I do not know Jelly Belly Shakes – bit close to home that one -what a laugh!

  14. I have never heard of the rhyme called “Hopping Song”.
    I was in Melbourne for the 4th of April Family Day of the SLQ Book Festival – what an amazing, chockers day! I picked up a postcard about the CD whilst there and took it back to our next SBWI meeting in Brisbane – lots of enthusiastic comments – any chance of getting copies up here?

  15. The rhyme that I haven’t heard of is: Hopping Song.

  16. #66 – Jelly Belly Shakes.

  17. I havent heard of the Animal Orchestra rhyme

  18. Never heard of Wibbleton to Wobbleton – but it sounds fun!

  19. Shadow song – l don’t know that one!

  20. Wow so many great ones, I knew almost all of them coming from teaching background but I haven’t heard of Jelly Belly Shakes, but it sounds like a lot of fun and something my daughter would get a big giggle from!

  21. Wriggle Giggle sounds interesting, never heard of it before. Thanks for the chance to win this book!

  22. The Hoppng song s a new one for me have never heard but would love too :)

  23. I can’t wait to read Wibbleton to Wobbleton… sounds like one the kids will love!

  24. We don’t know wriggle giggle but am sure we would enjoy!

  25. So wish I lived in Victoria – my vote is for yellow butterfly I haven’t heard of it and it sounds pretty

  26. Running Out the Door Socks- cant say I have heard of that one. It makes me think of the mayhem at my house each morning when we are trying to leave the house.

  27. I have not heard if yellow butterfly but it sounds beautiful

  28. One rhyme that I have not heard of is ‘Shadow’. My four year old son is fascinated with Shadows made by people and objects, so we would love to hear this rhyme.
