Sometimes I like to curl up in a ball

So no one can see me

because I'm so small.

Little wombat spends a day doing favorite things--what could they be? Are they your favorites, too? Let's look and see! He especially enjoys walking around and around, and doing a pigeon step till he falls down. Or sticking out his pink tongue--and pulling funny faces (now that can be fun)! And maybe he'll jump just as high as he can, and see how much noise he will make when he lands. But when the day ends and the sun starts to fall...he goes back home to mama and curls into a ball. Good night! Soft-toned illustrations portray an endearing little wombat and the warm and friendly world around him--and every page is filled with charming details that stand up to repeat viewings: cute mice, rabbits and turtles peering from behind tall grass, marching pigeons, and a menagerie of other adorable animals. The images, along with the lyrically rhyming text, combine to make a sweet-spirited bedtime story to ease young ones to sleep.

Synopsis:

Soft illustrations and rhyming text combine to make a sweet-spirited bedtime story. Follow little wombat on his daily routine as he walks around and around, doing a pigeon step till he falls down. Or, laugh with him as he sticks out his pink tongue — and makes funny faces (now that can be fun)! And, maybe he'll jump just as high as he can, and see how much noise he will make when he lands.

Synopsis:

Little Wombat spends a day doing favorite things—what could they be? He especially enjoys walking around and around, and doing a pigeon step till he falls down. But when the day ends and the sun starts to fall...he goes back home to Mama and curls into a ball. “Buoyant and darling, charming and fun. This simple picture book will keep kids hopping.”—School Library Journal.
