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.
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.
I initially purchased it because i LOVED IT! The pictures captured my heart, and the words are large print,easy to read and great content, my 3-5's adore it as much as i do, and it will be a book i'll be keeping for my own chn!
HIGHLY reccomend, you wont regret it!
I have shared the book with my family, friends and collegues at school. EVERYONE LOVES IT AND BOUGHT A COPY! I have the other two book by the Illustrator, Charles Fuges. I LOVE THE WOMBAT and can't get enough of him. I have currently ordered the fourth addition to the LITTLE WOMBAT which will be released this August! I am sooooo excited!
THIS IS A MUST BUY! It can't help but put a smile on your face. CHARLES FUGE IS A GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
