A beautiful Australian take on a classic nursery rhyme

A beautiful Australian take on a classic nursery rhyme
'Once I heard a little wombat stomp stomp stomp...'
Read along and act out the movements as these baby Australian animals eat, play and settle down for nap time.

Reviews

And as well as being a beautiful object, Once I Heard a Little Wombat generously provides almost everything a parent or carer for a toddler could ask for in a story: movement prompts, a bold and contrasting subject for each spread, varying colour backgrounds, sounds (and just the right amount of repetition), voices, rhyme, first person narrative and can't you just imagine it as a song? Once I Heard a Little Wombat is a deceptively sophisticated combination of art and aesthetic, with thoughtful and studied consideration of audience. It is exactly what a board book should be!
