You always make things so much fun,
On rainy days,
Or in the sun…
Little Wombat, a charming character by Charles Fuge, is back with a gorgeous rhyming ode to mums. You’re the Best, Mum! is a charming little story about all the little moments which make the days with mum special. A perfect read for very young readers, the rhymes will keep them engaged.
Cheerful illustrations add to the charm of this lovely tale of what makes moments with mum special. From being brave, to being wild, to learning all about nature, Little Wombat has a lot of adventures to share. It is sweet, yet cheeky, and with the Australian animals featured, makes it a winner for next Aussie Mother’s Day.
