Wombats by Kristin Petrie
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Welcome to the world of the wombat! Many readers may never have heard of this nocturnal creature. This excellent digger is Australias largest burrowing animal. The book Wombats covers all three wombat species, including the common wombat, the southern hairy-nosed wombat, and the endangered northern hairy-nosed wombat. A chapter on the wombats body discusses its appearance, size, and special features, such as its strong digging claws and its ability to run and swim. Other chapters cover its habitat, including a map, its herbivorous diet, and its life cycle. Like its relative the koala, the wombat carries its young, or joey, in a pouch. Predators, including humans, are also introduced, along with threats to the wombats environment, such as deforestation, forest fires, and floods, and conservation efforts that are in place. Full-color photographs will draw in readers while showing off the wombats unique characteristics. Glossary words in bold, phonetic spellings, and an index supplement this easy-to-read text. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
