Review: Bronwyn Bancroft's 1, 2, 3 and abc box set

I love to give books as a gift for newborns and I have always been a fan of Indigenous Australian artist/illustrator Bronwyn Bancroft, so it is no surprise that I enjoy this wonderful board book set for little ones.

Featuring two books, An Australian 1, 2, 3 of Animals (numbers 1 – 12) and An Australian a b c of Animals, the books feature Bancroft's gorgeous, colourful illustrations of Australian wildlife. From ants to zebra lionfish and platypus to emu, the books are a wonderful way to introduce babies and toddlers to the joys of reading.

The clear, colourful images are sure to delight babies and as they grow to become toddlers they will be able to enjoy recognising some of our wonderful Australian animals.

Both books are also available separately in standard picture book format.
