As the sun sets and the bush darkens, Wombat comes out of her burrow, ready to begin her day. She ventures through the bush, stopping to graze on some grass and to dig under a fence.
She continues digging, excavating a long tunnel that joins a big burrow, where she rests through the hot hours of the next day. As the temperature cools, Wombat explores her territory, repelling intruders and avoiding predators, all the while protecting her precious secret: a baby joey, safe in her pouch.
When the coast is clear, Wombat continues grazing and exploring, teaching her little joey all about being a wombat.
With different styles of text denoting the narrative story about Wombat and her joey, versus the factual information about wombats, this addition to the Nature Storybook series is an excellent resource about one of Australia’s most beloved native animals.
Detailing their most common characteristics and day-to-day habits, its simple story and detailed visuals make for both an informative resource and an engaging book for younger readers.
