Opening: Sometimes I like to curl up in a ball, so no one can see me because I’m so small.
Summary: (from my library catalog) Wombat likes to do many different things during the day, but when night comes he seeks out the coziest place of all.
Why I like this book: A customer recommended this book to me, and it is rather adorable! So fun to read aloud and the wombat’s expressions are priceless! A great bedtime story and the ending has a satisfying “ahhh”.
Resources/Activities: discuss what simple activities give you pleasure; make a bunch of funny faces; take time to go outside and do the things that wombat likes to do.
