Here we have a demonstration of one of our favourites from The ABC’s of Australian Animals: D for Dingo (Three-Legged Dog Pose): “A Dingo stretching its legs after a long sleep in a stony cave”!
When it comes to New Year’s Resolutions, I tend to find 3 recurring goals right up the top:

* Disclaimer: Whilst Luke’s Beach Day and The ABC of Australian Animals were generously given to us, all opinions here are my own. Having enjoyed these books so much, we have recently purchased a copy of Goodnight Animal World (and a couple of extra copies for gifts!)
Rather than a full story as such, The ABC’s of Australian Animals follows the alphabet from A through to Z, with an Australian animal pose for each. For each animal, there is a description, telling something interesting about that animal. Again, the book can be used in different ways, and can be graded up or down to make it easier or more challenging as required. For us, living in Australia, it is a nice way to learn about our native animal friends – there were even a couple of surprise animals (A and U in particular)!

Among the many benefits, I love that the books encourage:
- Spatial awareness and gross motor fun!
And… both of these books come in both ENGLISH and SPANISH editions!
