My girls have loved this cute little wombat for years. We love to quote the book and share by giving it as a first birthday present.

great for all ages especially during those times we need a friend.

The way the Chipmonk tells his story is personfied. Chipmoks cannot talk, nor can they explain theire actions in words. This is why the story is identified as a fantasy because the plot of the story is not realistic. Based on the style of the book I gave the rating a high score. The author catches the readers attention easily by the uplifting words and phrases used. The ending also catches the reader off guard because the reader expects the chipmonk to continue to enjoy active activities but instead he chooses to curl up and go to bed.

This is a charming, delightful story of a wombat who spends the day doing some of his favorite things: sometimes it's standing still like a tree, or racing his friends and sometimes it's curling up in a ball!

My 16 month old adores this sweet story of a wombat. We borrowed it from the library but are going to purchase our own copy because she loves to read it over and over again. The wombat displays an ability to make anything fun! But what we especially love is the way that wombat finds a safe warm place to curl up at the end of the day.

I was at the book store looking for some books for my niece when I came across this book. I read it and fell in love with it. It is so cute.

I bought this book to read to my Special Education students. However, when I read it to my granddaughters the book never made it to my class. This book is about feeling good, safe and loved - a must read for any age.

I feel that 'Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball' is a very good book. The illustration are very bright and playful. The story line says that you can be yourself just because you can be and that at the end of the day, you can still go home and be safe and loved. It expresses how differences are out there and can be fun. I have read this book to several schoolaged kids and they love it!!!!:)

I bought this book for my preschoolers and they totally love it! The pictures are so pretty and soft. The children like to do everything the wombat does. It gets them excited and ready to go play outside.

I purchased this book for my 14 month old son for Christmas and he loves it! There is a really funny page where the wombat makes funny faces and my son thinks it's terrific. I would recommend this as a sweet and funny bedtime or anytime story.

This was an excelent book and it reminded me of a kid i used to know in school who did all of these things like make noise, curl up in a ball, run in circles, etc.

My sister gave this book to my son and it is one of our all time favorites. I love it so much that I often hope it is the book of choice for bedtime reading. Beautiful illustration and a sweet story. We had a problem with my son yelling inside the house, so now we say you can scream like the wombat...outside! I can't encourage you enough to get this book.

I am the mother of a toddler and a teacher. When I received this book, I couldn't have been more pleased. Page after page brought a visual feast. Charles Fuge's illustrations are charming, clever, and beautiful. I love this book. It makes me smile.

I am happy with the book, but am not happy with the time it took for the book to arrive. I will not be renewing my Barnes & Noble membership.
