Wizzy’s Words | Guest Blog Post

I met Sarah, somewhat fortuitously, when I mis-posted on social media when Wizzy’s Words, book of rhymes, was first published in August 2021.  Clearly, social media can be a powerful, positive tool and some connections and networking are meant to be!  It quickly became clear that Sarah and myself had the same passion for early development and learning.  We have stayed ‘in touch’ ever since and I am delighted to present her guest blog post here.

With this in mind, I have taken one of my rhymes and added actions that can be modified for 0-5-year-olds.  This will enable you to see how rhyme …
