(easy, fiction) Baby Kangaroo loves his mom's warm dark pouch, but every day as his body grows, so does his curiosity about the world around him. With growth comes danger and risk, but sometimes it is worth it, especially if you have mom's love and nice warm pouch in times of need! This is the first MWB book I have come across that was actually a bit wordy. However, it still manages to mezmerize irregardless. I have a bit of knowledge on Australia, so it was enjoyable to read and MWB is actually right on with the "facts" in this book. This would be a good addition to a theme unit on Australia or marsupials. ( )
