Itchy Coo's first publication specifically for babies and very young children, Katie's Coo is a delightful board book. Illustrated in full colour throughout, the book contains some much-loved traditional Scots rhymes, along with a few that are less well known. Parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles, big brothers and sisters, they'll all enjoy singing or chanting the words in Katie's Coo to babies and toddlers. And the bairns will love the combination of Scots words and sounds with the bright and simple illustrations by award-winning artist Karen Sutherland (Animal ABC, A Moose in the Hoose, Eck the Bee).

Developed in consultation with Craigmillar Books for Babies and the Scottish Book Trust, Katie's Coo is a fun introduction for young children to easy Scots rhymes.
