Last week, I enjoyed reading Baby Wombat’s Week by Jackie French as a bedtime story to my nephew. This copy was a board book, however it is also available as a soft cover book. Wombats are my favourite Australian animal, so of course I chose this one to read – after we had read the monkey book I gave him a few times!
This is a delightful story about a baby wombat and his new friend and all the things they get up to during the week. The illustrations are gorgeous and I love the baby wombat, so cute.
The words themselves are simple with the illustrations telling much of the story. My nephew and I enjoyed looking at the things baby wombat got up to. Many illustrations were of objects my nephew recognised so the story held his attention.
This is a gorgeous book that will be enjoyed by everyone. Oh, and I spotted my nephew taking this book to my son for him to read after I’d finished it!!
This book is also called “Diary of a Baby Wombat”.
