Summary

From Eric Carle, the New York Times bestselling author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Grouchy Ladybug, comes a reassuring tale of a mother's love for her child.

Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too? answers curious kids who wonder whether lions, bears, and monkeys have mothers, too. Bright collage illustrations and simple text reinforce the theme that everyone has a mother, and every mother loves her child.

Meet the little joey bouncing in mother kangaroo's pouch. Watch little cubs prance around mother lion. Swim with a baby dolphin calf in the deep blue sea. Eric Carle's classic, colorful collages of baby animals and their mothers will delight and comfort young readers.

Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too? is a warm and approachable book to use in the classroom, to cuddle up reading with a little one, and to give as a baby shower or Mother's Day gift.

Other favorite classic books from Eric Carle include The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Grouchy Ladybug, From Head to Toe, and many others.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 4^-6. Almost no author/illustrator over the past 30 years has played a more prominent role in the literary lives of preschoolers than Eric Carle. His large, inviting graphic animals have consistently delighted and taught children during early stages of development. This latest effort is no exception. The structure is appropriately simple. First, the question, "Does a Kangaroo have a mother, too?" followed on the next page by the answer, "Yes! A Kangaroo does have a mother! Just like me and you," along with a charming illustration of mother and offspring. The question is then repeated using a new animal--a giraffe, a swan, an elephant, etc.--12 animals in all. But in addition to simply introducing children to wildlife, Carle emphasizes the connection between humans and animals through portrayals of the mother-child bond of love; he also shows how humans bond to the natural world. The names of parents, young, and groups of each species are listed on the final page. --Tim Arnold"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Nearly a dozen animals are introduced, substituted into the titular question. "Carle's innovative textures, quirky perspectives and glowing, jewel tones mark these stylized images of affectionate animal mothers and their endearing young," said PW. Ages 3-6. (Mar.)
