Hairy Maclary’s Bone

Lynley Dodd

Down in the town by the butcher’s shop door,
 sat Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy . . .

With a big juicy bone from Samuel Stone, Hairy Maclary sets off for the dairy. His friends want him to share it but Hairy Maclary has other ideas . . .

Run your fingers over the text to hear the story and touch any word to hear and see it spoken and spelt. You can even colour in pages of the story and record your own voice.

Hear the barking dogs and the ferocious yowl of Scarface Claw, all part of the interactive experience, giving children and parents’ hours of fun.

This is not only a marvellous story, but a superb aid for early learning and literacy development.

Now available on both Google Play and the App Store for phones and tablets.
