Wombat Walkabout by Carol Diggory Shields, illustrated by Sophie Blackall
Six little wombats head off on a walkabout (a long walk) and one by one they get sidetracked by things in the Austrailian countryside, and is captured by a dingo. The last two make a plan to save their friends, will it work?
What I Thought: What an adorable book. The rhyme is catchy and the illustrations are so cute. Each of the wombats are wearing a specific item that provides distinction and Shields provides a key along with a glossary of the Austrailian terms that are used, like walkabout and kookaburra.
This would be a wonderful book to share in a Australia unit, or a fun counting book.
While I link each book to Amazon, I receive no funds from them for this action. I simply do this as a service in case anyone would like to read further reviews (professional or otherwise) for more information. Thank You!
