Welcome back to the house of Captain Kangaroo and friends. The Captain has time to read a story to his friends Mr. Moose, Bunny Rabbit and Joey the Kangaroo. The book cannot be found because the Treasure House is in such disarray. All of the animals begin a search for the missing book and in the process clean up the Treasure House and put everything in its place. Even Grandfather Clock is enlisted in the search, as he shares a poem for just this occasion. Adults who enjoy reading to children will want to share in this walk with the Captain. Young readers will be fascinated by the "look and find" elements of learning. The sounds of the clock, and Mr. Green Jeans yawning, will make this a great read-aloud for the preschool or kindergarten classroom. Another title in this series is Sharing Time.
