Bananas in Pyjamas by Helen Cook
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Bananas in Pyjamas is a humorous anthology of nonsense poems and other rhymes selected by Helen Cook and Morag Styles. Skipping rhymes, jumping rhymes, playground rhymes, nursery rhymes, rhymes on their head, rhymes on their tales, rhymes you know, and rhymes you don't. Lots of nonsense, crazy fun, why not sit down and read one (or two)? Bananas in Pyjamas is one of thirteen books that make up Independent Reading Level A, for children in Year 3/Primary 4. This phase of Cambridge Reading aims to extend children's experience of fiction, motivate them to enjoy reading, and improve their independence as readers.
