Ally Bally Bee
A lift-the-flap book
"Ally bally, ally bally bee,
Sittin on yer mammy's knee
Greetin for a wee bawbee
Tae buy some Coulters Candy."
Little Ally is having fun -- singing with Mummy, playing in the sun and getting messy with Daddy!

This is a playful re-imagining of the traditional Scottish rhyme -- perfect for sharing with very young children. The bright, colourful illustrations are full of fun details to spot and each page is enhanced with durable, toddler-friendly flaps.
'Ally Bally Bee is a great book to read to toddlers and a lovely way to engage with the re-telling of this popular Scottish rhyme.
