This is a must-have for baby's library. Very rhythmic in terms of tempo and rhyming, so even if your baby is too young to understand the words, they will enjoy the rhythm. And when they are older, they will enjoy the story. It's a very sweet book about all sorts of things that are fun to do, loud things, messy things, etc, but sometimes babies just like to curl up with a parent where they feel safe and secure. Aww... :-)

I bought this book after looking at it in a book store. I wanted a story that rhymed for my young son. But this book has more to offer than just rhymes. It is an adorable story about a young, playful wombat. He likes to race and make funny faces. The pictures are very nice as well. When I have to give a gift to expecting mothers or new babies, I often include this book because it's just so cute.

(...) After a long day, it's a special book to read - the bright illustrations and joyful prose always make me smile.
A great gift book for expecting parents and young children. The book's happy prose willentice any child to play "wombat" and act out the story.
I read this to a preschool class and had them act out the story as I read it, ending with "curling up in a ball" for naptime. I could see doing this with a young child before naptime or bedtime.

Format: Board book
I've had this book since I was 4 months old and now that I'm one I still love it. It's the only book that makes me stop what I'm doing and listen (I'm usually very busy playing with my toys). My Mum and Dad use the lines in the book to calm me at night when I'm a little bit upset and it always works. Of all the books I own, this is my favourite.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Boris Bangemann on March 17, 2003
Format: Hardcover
I admit that this is the first (OK, maybe the second) children's book that I bought more for myself than for Max.
The feisty wombat who sometimes likes to curl up in a ball is a quite active and wild little fellow. It is having fun with its friends running, jumping and screaming. The effect on Max is not exactly that of a "sweet-spirited bedtime story to ease young ones to sleep."
The highlight of the book is without any doubt the page where the wombat shows how to make funny faces. Hilarious! In fact, I had considered taking the book to the office for therapeutic purposes.
In sum: A fun read with beautiful illustrations. Unfortunately it is not a board book. It is bound to suffer from a three-year-old's enthusiasm.

This book has been perfect since my daughter was born. At 11 months she loved to copy the faces (sticking out her tongue) and now she's 18 months now and loves to point out all the animals. Plus it's my favorite!
