This was another lovely book for storytime. Confirmed the strong bond of love between mother and child. In this case, mama kangaroo and her joey. I shared it with 4 year olds.

This is a beautiful book.
Mummy Kangaroo encouraging her joey to see the world outside her pouch with sensitivity and love.
Our 3 year old loved this book as did I.
