Early one morning when the sun came out, Six woolly wombats went walkabout.

This whimsical counting poem follows six brave little wombats on walkabout in the Australian outback. But the wilderness is bound to bring more excitement than an innocent counting game. Soon enough, the curious wombats learn to beware the hungry dingo!

Caldecott Medal-winner Sophie Blackall's delicious illustrations set the adorable wombats in a lush world of golden wattles, billabongs, kookaburras, and gum nuts. With marvelous wordplay and irresistible read-aloud phrases, this ingenious text from Carol Diggory Shields is sure to become a well-worn favorite. Accompanied by a short, simple glossary of Australian terms and wildlife.

Rhyming and counting in this cute story. Good to read aloud for preschool/kindergarten kids.
