A picture book every day

Baby Wombat's WeekLast 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”.

theresawombat-200Today’s book is my first attempt at reading an eBook as a picture book.¬†There’s a Wombat in my Bed by Tony Harris was a free eBook I was able to download from Tony’s website – Wombat Stories.

To be honest, I much prefer reading physical picture books as I find them a lot easier to read to my kids and my nephews.

I enjoyed this book, it’s full of fun rhymes and hand drawn pictures of Australian animals. I also love wombats, they are my favourite Australian animal… The rhymes are full of nonsense that kids love. Mr Z loved the page about the goanna as he loves lizards, and the idea of having a goanna in the garage is one that he loves.

This book is available as an online ebook, PDF and a printed book. Having all these different formats means you can choose the format that suits you.
