Possum magic animals by Mem Fox and Julie Vivas

Scholastic, 2013. ISBN 9781862919730.
(Age: 0-3) Recommended. Board Book. This little book has beautiful illustrations of the animals from Possum Magic. Julie Vivas' delightful illustrations are a joy to examine, the faces of the birds and animals just gorgeous to look at.
It is a sturdy treasure that would be a delight to give to babies as a gift, but also very useful for the young child who might like to trace the large words with their fingers as they learn the names of Australian animals like possum, snake, kangaroo, dingo, emu, echnida, wombat, koalas, kookaburras, and then end the book with the words, friends and good night!
