Life is a lot of fun for Wombat. There are lots of things he likes to do: shouting at the top of his voice, stepping in circles until he falls over, pulling funny faces and getting in a mess. But can you guess what he likes to do best of all?

This is a very funny story. It is written by Vicki Churchill and the pictures are by Charles Fuge. It tells us about a wombat, a brown, furry animal which looks like a sort of little bear and lives in Australia. He is about the size of a small dog, but round and tubby like a teddy bear. When we read the book together we shall see that life is a lot of fun for wombat.
On the book's cover is a picture of wombat, he is smiling and curled up in a ball. He has strawberries and flowers all around him and an upside down daisy on his head. You will have read the name on the book in Braille. Yes, it says, Sometimes I Like to Curl up in a Ball. Let's turn to our first Feely Picture and meet wombat.
He is jumping for joy! He loves doing this. Feel all over him. Can you find a fat furry body with arms outstretched above his head and legs pointing down as he leaps up in the air? Find the arm on the left and feel claws where you have fingers.
