School Library JournalPreS-In this picture book, Wiseman tells the story of a baby kangaroo who invites more and more animals into his mother's pouch. The new friends play until nighttime, and then Mama takes them home. The rhyming text is rather conventional and uninspired, and Burns's bland watercolors are equally unremarkable.-Elizabeth Hanson, Chicago Public Library

Little New Kangaroo based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Today I was asked to bring to class my favorite children's book. I thought about it for a while, and realized that I did not have one I could think of. Then I remembered this book that my grandmother had bought me when I was little. I remember that I loved the book so much that I never wanted to put it down. I had the book memorized within a week of having it. I was trying to remember the title of this book, and it finally came to me: Little New Kangaroo. We have to have some inspiration to write a book for a 3rd grade class at Vally Elementary, and my inspiration is Little New Kangaroo. The book was a very easy read when I was little. It was very creative, and I still know the rhyme today. I love the book, and my little sister loved it, too.
THE STORY WAS ENTERTAINING AND IT INTRODUCED ANIMALS THAT ARE ONLY FOUND IN AUSTRALIA. MY CHILDREN LOVE THIS BOOK. THEY SING THE RHYMING STORY OFTEN.
