Smorgasbord Children’s Reading Room – New books on the shelves – Let’s Move and Wombat Digs In by Norah Colvin

Delighted to add two books and their recent reviews to the Reading Room by Norah Colvin published by Library for All

About Let’s Move

How does a fish move? How does a snake move? How do you move? This is a beautifully illustrated book for 4-8 year old readers. Proceeds from this sale benefit nonprofit organisation Library For All, helping children around the world learn to read.

A recent review for the book

Robbie Cheadle5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful book for very young children  Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 June 2021

This is a delightful little book for teaching very young children about animals and movement. The illustrations are adorable and I particularly liked the snails that slide and the snakes that slither.

About Wombat Digs In

Wombat wants to play with all of the other animals but he doesn’t know how! This is a beautifully illustrated book for 4-8 year old readers. Proceeds from this sale benefit nonprofit organisation Library For All, helping children around the world learn to read.

And a review for the book

Robbie Cheadle5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful book with beautiful bright illustrations  Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 June 2021

This is an adorable book for small children about a wombat who is struggling to keep up with some of the other animals including the kangaroos who can bounce, the possums who can climb, and the fruit bats who can fly. Wombat is feeling a little dejected, but when Baby Koala falls out of the tree, Wombat’s own special skill of digging comes to the forefront. This little book is illustrated with simple and bright pictures that small children will love.

  1. Great books, and so needful for getting younsters interested for foreign languages. Funnily enough, I just remember my first own experiences with “moving”, when I didn’t want to stay in kindergarten. I was frightened of the black nun clothes. Lol xx Michael

  3. Sally, thank you so much for sharing news of these books and Library For All on your shelves. Library For All is such a wonderful organisation with a vision for improving literacy worldwide by providing books free to children everywhere, but especially in developing countries where they don’t have ready access to books but seem to have access to digital technology. Children can download the books free from a digital collection which numbers in the thousands. I am delighted to have these two in the collection with more to be added in the future. As a passionate educator with a strong belief in empowerment through literacy, it is a pleasure to be involved with Library For All. I am very grateful to you for helping to spread the word. Thank you for your support of readers and writers everywhere.

  4. Reblogged this on Norah Colvin and commented:
    I am delighted find that my two little books from the Library For All collection are featured in Sally Cronin’s Smorgasbord Children’s Reading Room.
    Library For All is an Australian not for profit organisation with a mission to “make knowledge accessible to all, equally” through a digital library of books that is available free to anyone anywhere in the world.
    Sally is a wonderful supporter of readers and writers everywhere and I am very appreciative of the support she offers me and am grateful to her for sharing news of these books and of Library for All.
    Please pop over to Sally’s to read her post. While you are there, if you haven’t already, take some time to explore the richness of what Sally has to offer on her site.

  5. I thought I knew about all of Norah’s writings (her own and her reviews of other books) , but your post here shows I knew too little. Norah is not only a wonderful writer for children, and flash fiction writer (in which I enjoy her stories on her blog) but also an amazing supporter of children’s books authors. She’s a generous and talented blogger/writer/woman.
