Welcome to our stop on Winston the Wombat’s Rockstar Book Tour! We’re big on on reading books at bedtime in our house hold and so we were more than happy to check out Winston’s adventures. Megan Cline and Sakshi Mangal have created an adorable, precocious character who has a lot to share with young readers.

Each book that we read had a primary message with other lit tidbits thrown in, too. In one book, a hot summer day turns into an opportunity to learn not just about rainbows but other things like friendship. The other books teach lessons on patience and perseverance, taking time to learn things and practicing calm. Each story offers something new and young readers – and their parents – will certainly find them relatable!

Another big draw for this series is, as you can probably tell from the covers, the illustrations. Sakshi Mangal has created this adorable world full of equally adorable creatures. I loved her style and thought it worked perfectly with the story and characters!

Interested in learning more? Check out synopsis of each book below and read on to enter a giveway for a chance to win a set of signed Winston books for yourself!

A curious and thoughtful little wombat, Winston is always trying new things and wondering about one thing or another. Luckily, his always loving and patient mom is there to offer encouragement, affection, and the answers to all of his questions―of which there are many.

Today, Winston wants to wink. Why? Well, he always watches his Grandpa wink and wants to wink as well. But wow! What a challenge!

With the help of his mom, he learns that not every skill comes easily, but that with patience and practice and perseverance, they can be perfected.

If Winston wants to wink badly enough and keeps working at it, then wink he will!…

Everybody’s favorite Wombat is back, and he’s desperate to cool down! Winston wants to play outside, but it’s SO hot. Luckily, his mom comes up with a great idea: They can play in the sprinklers! Together they jump and laugh and play in the cool water under a hot summer sun, and then things get even better. There’s a rainbow! Right there in the mist. But where did it come from?

With the help of his mom, Winston learns why rainbows appear when there’s mist in the sun, and how it’s just like friendship and love-something miraculous that you can feel and enjoy, even when you can’t catch it in your hand….
