Summary
The tree kangaroo at the zoo would like nothing more than a baby of her own. So, when a new egg arrives via the endangered species van, the 'roo jumps at the chance to take care of it, even when no one else wants it. Soon, out comes a penguin and all the animals chip in to help because, as the tree kangaroo says, "Penguins eat fishes."nbsp;nbsp;

Told in Judy Sierra's classic rollicking rhyme, and paired with Marc Brown's breathtaking folk-art style paintings, Wild About You! is another delightful collaboration from this New York Times bestselling duo that fans of Wild About Books and ZooZical will want to adopt for their own book collections.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Sierra and Brown return to Springfield Zoo in this baby-themed follow-up to Wild About Books and ZooZical. Sierra's couplets are as sharp and witty as ever, with a distinct Seussian vibe. Watching other animals with their offspring, a tree kangaroo and a panda couple announce that they want babies, too. When a rescue worker arrives with an endangered egg, the tree kangaroo volunteers to hatch it, and the pandas adopt a small orange kitten. The other animals pitch in to help the adoptive parents, proving that "It takes a whole zoo" to raise a baby. Working in the same angular, heavily patterned style of the previous books, Brown offers active yet comforting spreads of the animals with their children (one scene invites readers to find the zoo babies that have wandered off). Sierra hints at parenthood's more trying moments, yet what resonates loudest is unconditional love: "Penguins don't fly. Penguins never sing sweetly," says the tree kangaroo to the newborn chick. "But that doesn't matter. I love you completely!" Furthermore, the mixed-species adoptions quietly affirm the value of families in all their varieties. Ages 4-8. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
