Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball

by Vicki Churchill
Ages 0-5

Little Wombat loves life. Sometimes he likes to be loud and scare all the other creatures in the forest. Sometimes he likes to make funny faces, play in the mud, and stick out his tongue. But at the end of every day, there is one thing he likes to do -- find a comfy place to curl up in a ball with his mama. This book is a cozy, delightful bedtime read that will warm your heart, as it has ours!
