Illus. by Lisa Stewart. ABC Books, 2019. ISBN: 9780733339196.
(Age: 0-3) Recommended. Themes: Babies, Mobility. What a joyous, beautifully illustrated book that parents will enjoy reading to their very young children! Two little toddlers, just learning to walk and run wobble across the pages of this delightful book.
Wibble wobble, walking tall.
Wibble wobble, tumble fall.

The soft pastel illustrations from Lisa Stewart are a delight to follow as the two toddlers and their pet dog and cat stumble across the page, moving from building a tower with ten blocks and gradually toddling outside where they have a great adventure in a mud puddle. Finally they are bathed and off to bed:
Wibble wobble,
cheeky mites.
Walk tomorrow . . .
sleep tonight.

The rhyme of the story lends itself beautifully to reading aloud and a carer will have lots of fun emphasising actions, while the small child will delight in the repetition of the words, 'Wibble wobble'.
This would be a delightful gift for parents with young children and is sure to become a favourite as the young child learns to walk.
