Link and a Quote: Australia Day 2009

Link and a Quote is my version of a coffee (or tea) break with a good piece of cake …

Links: In honor of Australia day, here is a link to a fab book which will be released on March 19, by Penguin. It’s titled Wombat Walkabout, and is illustrated by Australian artist Sophie Blackall. I don’t have my own copy to make a fair review, but I had a quick glance at this whimsical wonder a few months back and feel that it’s going to be a big hit during toddler and preschool story times. The story is clever, the illustrations are marvelous, and the glossary of the colloquial Australian language and unique animals gives perfect closure to a very fun book.

Talking about wombats, here is a link by A Fuse #8, a book review of How to Scratch a Wombat by Jackie French. Jackie’s other titles that fit this Australia Day post are Diary of a Wombat and Pete the Sheep-Sheep.

But wait, there is more … a post titled Great Australian Books for Children.
