Format: Paperback
one woolly wombat sunning by the sea two cuddly koalas sipping gumnut tea
and so on to fourteen A now-classic Australian counting book, featuring native animals and other features of the Australian landscape and lifestyle (bush, lamingtons, and some flora)
A good choice for a counting book (also going beyond the traditional 10) for Aussie and non-Aussie kids alike.

This book has been a favourite of my cousins. It is witty, colourful and incorporates Australian animals, which children always love. Lots of pictures, and easily read or sung.

Format: Paperback
One Woolly Wombat certainly has no complicated storyline or even a basic one for that matter. Similar in style to say the 12 days of Christmas song but in numerical order the reader visits one woolly wombat sunning by the sea along with increasing numbers of other Australian wildlife with every even numbered group doing something that rhymes with the activity the odd number before it was doing.

The friends the reader will meet to help them count along with a wombat are, koalas, magpies, kangaroos, platypuses, possums, emus, echidnas. goannas, kookaburras, dingos, cockatoos, hopping mice and seals. Illustrations of these animals (with the exception of the wombat) are very realistic looking as well.

If more of an actual story you were after other great Australian wildlife fiction picture book classics that kids all over the world will love are out there. The best are Possum Magic and Hunwick's Egg by Mem Fox. Sebastian Lives in a Hat by Thelma Catterwell, Wombat Stew by Marcia Vaughan, the entire Steve Parish story book collection by Rebecca Johnson such as The Cranky Crocodile are also great reads. Olga the Brolga and Edward the Emu although not the best stories have some greatest drawn colourful illustrations of Australian wildlife you will ever see.

Format: Hardcover
wildlife animal so one can either enjoy seeing their local wildlife if they live their or they can learn what animals live there. The illustrations are fun and playful. Each page is one sentence and they rhyme for the most part although some are a bit weak. Still, a fun book for counting up to 14.
