"Ally bally, ally bally bee,
Sittin on yer mammy's knee
Greetin for a wee bawbee
Tae buy some Coulter's Candy."

Little Ally is having fun -- singing with Mummy, playing in the sun and getting messy with Daddy!

Sing along and lift the flaps to discover teddy getting splashed in a paddling pool, covered in paint and lost under a pile of sweeties.

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.

Reviews

'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.'
-- Emma Dunn, The Scotsman

'...a new board book for wee ones, each page having a surprise hidden under a flap -- a device just adored by inquisitive fingers. Kathryn Selbert's illustrations are charmingly simple, if not particularly Scottish (she is American) and my granddaughter loves it. Not so sure about my singing though...'
-- Lothian Life
