This is a great book. Marc Brown brilliantly illustrates the story of this book. This is a great book to read for fun, or to start off a lesson in animal infants. Though this book is heavily filled with fantasy, it is a great way to get kids thinking about animals and their young. ( )

I would use this story for a poetry lesson introducing haiku's and how to make your own. This book is good for modeling this and as well as keeping students interest. ( )

Everyone at the zoo seems to be getting babies but the tree kangaroo. When the endangered species van comes around they drop off an egg for the kangaroo. No matter what comes out of that egg, the kanagroo will love it.

This is a great story about adoption and I love Judy Sierra. I would share this with children who are adopted because the animals express this true love for this unknown species. Even though they are animals, it can still be relatable to a child ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0307931781, Hardcover)

The tree kangaroo at the zoo would like nothing more than a baby of her own. So, when a new egg arrives via the endangered species van, the 'roo jumps at the chance to take care of it, even when no one else wants it. Soon, out comes a penguin and all the animals chip in to help because, as the tree kangaroo says, "Penguins eat fishes."  

Told in Judy Sierra's classic rollicking rhyme, and paired with Marc Brown's breathtaking folk-art style paintings, Wild About You! is another delightful collaboration from this New York Times bestselling duo that fans of Wild About Books and ZooZical will want to adopt for their own book collections.

Joining the new baby animals at the zoo are the much-loved pengaroo and the pandacat.
