The re­turn of Old Mac­Don­ald

Hamilton Press - - OUT & ABOUT - MU­SIC COM­PE­TI­TION

Wow! Waikato cer­tainly loves the Topp Twins.

Judg­ing by the num­ber of en­tries to our ear­lier com­pe­ti­tion, fans were rapt to hear Jools and Lynda were bring­ing their Head­ing For The Hills Tour to Hamil­ton’s iconic Clarence Street Theatre.

On top of that (no pun in­tended!), The Topp Twins have once more teamed up with pub­lisher Scholas­tic New Zealand and il­lus­tra­tor Jenny Cooper to re­lease their sixth chil­dren’s book and we have a copy up for grabs.

The all-time chil­dren’s favourite Old Mac­Don­ald Had a Farm makes a lively and fun filled ad­di­tion to their grow­ing col­lec­tion of pic­ture book and CD sets.

If you don’t al­ready know the words and ac­tions to this favourite in schools and preschools, then get ready to learn them!

Sing along to the Topp Twins’ one-of- a-kind ren­di­tion of the song.

Cooper’s hi­lar­i­ous ac­ci­dent­prone farmer, in his gum­boots and Swan­ndri, along with a noisy and mis­chievous cast of rowdy an­i­mals are sure to bring a chuckle to chil­dren and adults alike.

Since the re­lease of their first chil­dren’s book in 2011, Lynda and Jools have re­mained com­mit­ted to work­ing on fun books and songs for chil­dren.

‘‘If we’re hav­ing fun and the kids are hav­ing fun and it helps them to learn to read, then it’s all good,’’ Jools said.

‘‘We’re amazed by how many kids en­joy the books as much as we do — we’re still big kids at heart.’’

Head along to Clarence St for a fun night out and then back home with Old Mac­Don­ald for some qual­ity fam­ily time with the kids and grand­kids.
