Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Wheatley
The "Caroline Arnold's Animals" books use intricate paper cutting to illustrate the animals and habitats. This series explores the animals of Australia from birth until they grow and leave their mothers. The newborn eastern gray kangaroo crawls up his mother's belly and into the pouch where he stays for months eating and growing. At the age of six months, the joey is old enough to peek out of the pouch but does not venture out until he is eight months old. The joey must endure predators such as dingoes while learning to survive the winters and hot summers. When a year has passed, the mother gives birth to another joey, and the first one is ready to be on his own. Arnold simply describes the dynamics of the mob of kangaroos and the daily trials they face. Included on each page are sidebars with facts that support the information in the story. A map showing locations where the eastern gray kangaroo is found, a page of kangaroo fun facts, glossary, an index, and books and web pages to find more information are located at the end of the book. The beautifully creative and elaborate paper-cut illustrations and easy to understand text make this a great beginning book for readers learning about the animal. Reviewer: Barbara Wheatley
