Overview

Sometimes I Like to Curl up in a Ball by Vicki Churchill, Charles Fuge

Sometimes I like to curl up in a ball
So no one can see me
because I'm so small.

A new format for the hugely praised bestseller.
Little wombat spends a day doing favorite things-what could they be? Are they your favorites, too? Let's look and see. Soft-toned illustrations portray an endearing little wombat and the warm and friendly world around him. Every page is filled with charming details that stand up to repeated 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.

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 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 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.
