I may be biased because I'm lucky enough that I got to hold a baby wombat a couple of months ago, but I still really like these books. I do think that the human mum (or dad) offscreen, so to speak, must be questioning why their baby always smells of wombats though! ( )

Baby Wombat narrates its daily life much as its mama did in the previous book - though the mama is now tired, crowded, and pounced-upon. The baby wombat finds a playmate in the child of the family the wombats live near. ( )

The picture storybook, "Diary of a Baby Wombat", written by, Jackie French describes the life of a baby Wombat and its curiosity of its surroundings. The book describes the Wombats habitat and it's schedule of sleeping, eating, and exploring. The baby Wombat meets a infant and creates a bond with the child. The Wombat learns from the playful friendship and becomes closer to the child, who provides a bigger hole to live in for the Wombats. ( )

Should be called Diary of a Baby and a Baby Wombat. The interaction with the human baby was key. But I think it was awkward - after all, wombats are wild animals, not quite like tame doggies. I mean, French knows better than I do, but seriously? ( )
