Whoosh Around the Mulberry Bush starts with children dancing round the mulberry bush and then sets off around the world to show all sorts of animal capers, including hens pecking around the chicken coop, monkeys swinging around the jungle vines, polar bears and arctic hares sliding around the icicles, and zebras kicking their heels around the waterhole. The text can be sung to the rhythm of 'Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush'. Children will love copying
the actions and noises that the animals make and while they're enjoying all the fun of joining in, they will have the opportunity to learn something of world habitats and wildlife.
