Book Review

Over in Australia-Amazing Animals Down Under, a new book by Marianne Berkes and illustrated by Jill Dubin was sent to me by the publisher Dawn Publications.
Here's an excerpt: Over in Australia
                             In a swamp in the sun
                             Lived a fierce crocodile
                             And her little hatchling one.

                             "Snap," said the mother.
                             "I snap," said the one.
                             So they snipped and they snapped
                             In a swamp in the sun.

This counting book from one to ten explores animals from Australia in rhyme. Animals mentioned are Emus, Bilbies, Broigas, Sugar Gliders, wombats and more! I give this book 4 out of 5 books. Highly recommended for children ages 3 to 8.
