That's Not My Wombat by Fiona Watt
Usborne, 2020. ISBN: 9781474980470. 10pp., board book.
The latest in this series of over 150 charming board books for our very youngest readers that encourage them to use their senses to discover the world around them focuses on the wombat, such an iconic Australian creature. With shiny claws, smooth paws, soft tummy and several other distinctive features. little hands will enjoy exploring the textural elements that are the hallmark of the series. Like its companion That's not my koala, which highlights the koala, it teaches our littlies to look more closely at the details that distinguish the wombat from other marsupials. The repetitive text and clear pictures encourage prediction, thus developing those early concepts about print that are so essential while engaging them with the reading experience in a way that only print books can.
Definitely one to add to the Christmas stocking or baby shower gift!
