Think for yourself, or risk being a hungry Dingo. Reread on 21 October Read with my Turkish host family's children. The 3-year-old loved this one so much that he dragged me to the piano after the first reading to play him the 'Wombat Stew' song.
Then he made me read it another four times over the course of the morning. After reading it word for word the first two times, I made up my own versions the next three times and improved it with some rhythmic rhymes, eg.

Original review from 29 October A fun one to read aloud with children, who'll love the catchy wombat stew chant.
Every Australian child encounters this book at some point, it seems. Why wombat doesn't just amble away while dingo's attention is elsewhere beats me, but then there wouldn't be a story, I guess! A story of how the wombat's friends managed to outwit a rather dim dingo to stop him being slow-cooked in a stew.
Each animal recommends their favourite ingredient ideally one that would taste gross! The little ditty is a recurring e A story of how the wombat's friends managed to outwit a rather dim dingo to stop him being slow-cooked in a stew.
The little ditty is a recurring element through the book - and I'm sure as X-man gets a bit older he'll be singing along. I really like that tune for the ditty is provided on the last page as sheet music. Although it does highlight that the last time I read sheet music was more than 15 years ago - so I required some assistance to interpret it!
Fun making Wombat Stew with your kids

The eyes, it turned out, belonged to a kookaburra bird. The tree was a gum tree. Soon after reading this book we met a kookaburra bird at the zoo! And that was the extent of what appealed to our two year old reader.

Jun 27, Alicia Evans rated it really liked it Shelves: A dingo gets the idea to have wombat stew and he vows to make the tastiest stew ever, all the while singing a little song. Various animals come up to him and tell him that his stew isn't done yet and that he needs to add things to make it better before he can add the terrified wombat.
With the fun song and the silly antics, readers will enjoy the worry over the wombat's fate. I wouldn't advise reading the whole version aloud to a group of kids though.

Wombat Stew Young Reader
You will be surprised that you will still know the words to the catchy wombat stew song even if you've read the story once or twice a lifetime ago. I love the illustrations in this book and how Australian the story is.
All of the animals are native to Australia, and that just makes the story even more special to people like me who are Australian. I also love how the animals work together to prevent the wombat from becoming the dingo's wombat stew.
Feb 28, Esther rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of my all time favorite books as a child.
For a primary talent show my brothers and I turned the characters into puppets and turn the text into a script. There is even a page of music in the book of the song the dingo sings that we learned and sang. This book began my love of wombats and I was reminded it by the other cute wombat book: The Diary of a Wombat.

They are helping the wombat who was caught by the Dingo who is planning to make wombat stew. It has a repetition of a couple of lines and in the back of the book there is some music set to those lines.
