Suddenly Jen and Jack realize the others are no longer following. Hiding by the trail, th [...]

    6. Since my two-year-old son obtained his first library card recently, we've been eagerly embarking on weekly visits and barrowing toddler books by the truck-loads. There are many book lists available on the web by authors and celebs of your picking. Having only one child, and a little one at that, I'm a smidge out of touch with popular children books of the day. This particular book was recommended by Oprah. I love the creative Australian take on the classic "numbers" nursery rhyme, "At first ther [...]

    11. I - and my Grade 2 class - really enjoyed this. They got the hang of the repetition really quickly, and joined in. They loved predicting what was going to happen, including the 'twist in the tale' - and they adored spotting the Dingo on each page. It's a great story with a really easy rhythm and fab rhymes. Some of the vocabulary is very Australian: I explained the words we didn't know to the class, but labels on the illustrations would have helped. A great book, and one that I guess slightly yo [...]

    20. Cute story about a nasty wombat-hunting dingo and the wombats who first fall prey, and then eventually outsmart him (or her? I'm not good at telling gender on a dingo). Great illustrations from Sophie Blackall, which is no surprise; the pictures are really one of the highlights of the Ivy and Bean books, which Blackall also illustrates.

    21. I like books where I get to read it to Izzy and Asha in a ridiculous accent. This one is Australian ("eer's your dingo, guvnah!") For Strega Nona and Watch Out For the Chicken Feet in Your Soup it's borderline-racist Italian. "mamma mia, that's a nice-a pizza"

    22. A cute rhyming book about a group of wombats. At the front of the book the author gives a glossary of some of the Australian lingo that is in the book. A fun book to add to an Australian themed unit.

    27. In addition to being a great counting/rhyming story with adorable wombat illustrations, there are Australian vocabulary words to learn and the opportunity to put on an Aussie accent while reading this one aloud. Delightful!

    28. Such a fun retelling of the usual "5 Little (small animal)" format. What's not to love about wombats? The last few wombats rescue their mates, then mosey on home for tea. I can't wait to do this in Story time!

    29. An Australian version of a popular rhyme, this book helps children learn to count to six using animals from Down Under. Non-Australian readers may struggle with some of the lingo, but a helpful glossary starts the book.
