Unreal Banana Peel


Back in 1995 June Factor's book hit the shelves and it was just as popular as her previous 2 collections of Aussie kids' chants/ rhymes.

Many are familiar chants and rhymes countless generations have grown up with in the schoolyard and these books are a fun reminder of oft-forgotten chants and something new for current-day kids to enjoy.

Who remembers -

Copycat from Ballarat
Went to school and got the strap
For sitting on the teachers lap.


Hey diddle diddle
The cat did a piddle
Behind the kitchen door.
The little dog laughed to see such fun
So the cat did a little bit more.

Captain Cook chased a chook
All around Australia.
Lost his pants in the middle of France
And found them in Tasmania.

Go borrow the books from the library like we did for a good giggle or 3 wink
