What game sums up the hopes of the nation more than...Bingo?! You don't have to be a regular player to know the familiar calls: 'Two fat ladies!' 'Doctor's orders!' But what inspired the bingo caller's famous lexicon? From 'Kelly's Eye' (1) to Top of the Shop (90), Bingo demystifies the phrases behind the numbers, with delightful illustrations by acclaimed graphic designer Anita Mangan to depict every single number.
Bingo Lingo is the book you need to put the fun back into literacy hour! Carefully linked to the National Curriculum Literacy requirements, this clever selection of songs and rhymes have been written especially to bring excitement and song into the classroom. Each song has been arranged around a familiar tune so that no formal music-reading is required.
