Young Kangaroo

Overview

On the grassy plains of Australia, a kangaroo is born. Within the safety of his mother's warm pouch he slowly becomes aware of all the different sights and sounds and smells around him. Warily poking his head out for the first time, he is startled by the bright light of the sun. Later he is soothed by the soft glow of the stars at night.

One day he tumbles out of the pouch and is surprised - and a little frightened - to find himself standing on the ground on his own two feet! ...

Overview

On the grassy plains of Australia, a kangaroo is born. Within the safety of his mother's warm pouch he slowly becomes aware of all the different sights and sounds and smells around him. Warily poking his head out for the first time, he is startled by the bright light of the sun. Later he is soothed by the soft glow of the stars at night.

One day he tumbles out of the pouch and is surprised - and a little frightened - to find himself standing on the ground on his own two feet! But he is still a very small and young kangaroo and discovers that, although he is growing fast, he needs his mother very much.

This charming yet simple story, long out of print, by one of America's most beloved children's book authors has been given new life here with illustrations by Jennifer Dewey.

A tiny kangaroo is born and moves into his mother's pouch, where he grows big enough to be interested in the world around him long before he actually leaves her pouch to investigate further.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The author of Goodnight Moon blends an endearing nature story--illustrated in delicate, two-color drawings--with facts about these exotic animals. Ages 2-6. (July)
Carolyn Phelan
Long out of print, this newly illustrated book tells the story of a little kangaroo, from just after his birth until he's old enough to hop out of his mother's pouch. While the text tells a tale of danger and loneliness and love, it also matter-of-factly tells a great deal about kangaroos and how they grow. With a keen understanding of what's important to children, Brown doesn't simply report on the joey's physical development, she re-creates sensory and emotional experiences that mirror those of children without making the young kangaroo into a little fur child. Dewey uses color pencils to create pleasing illustrations featuring softly shaded natural forms in spring greens and tawny browns. An interesting combination of fact and drama, this picture book would make an unusual but satisfying choice for reading aloud. A natural for primary grade classes studying kangaroos.
