Bibs and Boots by Alison Lester

ALISON LESTER: AUSTRALIA'S CHILDREN'S LAUREATE 2012-13..'Put on your bib for nibbles and dribbles. Put on your old clothes to dig and to play ...'..From the breakfast table, to a party, to the beach, and finally into the bath and bed, Alison Lester's board books are about everything a little person does in a day.


Toddlers are often renowned for their inappropriate dress sense - you know, wellies on a summer's day, tutus in the snow - but not this little cherub. She knows all about wearing the perfect outfit for each occasion, whether it's a bib for dribbles and nibbles, old clobber for a spot of gardening, her best party frock for a festive shindig and cosy pyjamas to snuggle up in at bedtime.
