One of four jaunty Australian board books about everyday life, for 1-4 year olds, by bestselling author Alison Lester.

Bouncing in the barrow.
Swinging through the sky.
Rattling in the trolley.
Swaying up so high.

Bumping in the pusher.
Splashing with our feet.
Riding on the pony.
Speeding down the street.

Outings to the garden, the supermarket, the pond, the farm ... Alison Lester's board books are about everything a little person does in a day.

Author bio:

Alison Lester grew up on a farm by the sea, and first rode a horse as a baby in her father's arms. Her picture books mix imaginary worlds with everyday life, encouraging children to believe in themselves and celebrate the differences that make them special. Alison is involved in many community art projects and spends part of every year travelling to remote Indigenous communities, using her books to help children and adults write and draw about their own lives.

In 2012, Alison became Australia's first Children's Book Laureate, a position she shared with Boori Monty Pryor. In 2016, she was awarded the Dromkeen Medal for her outstanding achievement in the creation of Australian children's and young adult literature, and in 2018 she became the first children's book writer to win the Melbourne Prize for Literature, for her outstanding contribution to Australian literature and cultural and intellectual life.
