The One About W - Wombat Divine

Another Mem Fox book. Another favorite. 

Poor Wombat. He so desperately wants to be part of the Nativity play. But he's big. And loud. And clumsy. But worry not, there is a place for everyone and each of us has our own gifts that we can bring. 

Such a great story. I always read this one at Christmas for obvious reasons. But we also talk about being yourself and that everyone is needed. Told you that was one of my favorite themes in books. 

As with Mem Fox's other books this one is chock full of Australian-centric animals and terms. I also love this aspect of her books. I mean, how often do you get to read about emus, koalas, and kookaburras?  Well, outside of Australia that is. 

I highly suggest you include this one in your Christmas collection. Don't worry you have plenty of time to find it. You'll be glad you did

What do you think?  A fan?  Of Mem Fox?  Wombat Divine?  Wombats in general?  

Thanks for hopping by!
