Deck the Shed with Bits of Wattle sung by Colin Buchanan and Greg Champion
Published by Scholastic Australia
Just in time for Christmas, this up beat Australian version of the classic "Deck the halls with boughs of holly" is a gorgeous tale, filled with super cute Aussie animals. The bright engaging illustrations are set to keep even the fussiest toddler amused.
Syd Echidna spends an afternoon making his shed ready for Christmas day, only to have a puff of wind blow all his hard work away. He is so disappointed that he heads off to bed. His friends including a Cockatoo, wombat, and kangaroo get together and gather an amazing array of bush wild flowers. When Syd awakes, he declares "There has never been a shed this decked".
Perfect for preschoolers, and filled with lots of Australianisms to ensure it will be a hit, especially for friends overseas, this little gem also comes with its own cd, so all the family can enjoy a sing-a-long.
