Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, too?

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, too? ( Eric Carle, HarperFestival), Paperback, $7.99, Ages: 0-4

Little children love baby animals. And, they love to have something in common with them. A mother’s love is the most common.

In Eric Carle’s Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too?, children are introduced to different baby animals along with their parents. The animals are presented in their natural environment.

This is a great picture book to expand your toddler’s world. It is an introduction to the animals on our planet. At the book’s end, Eric Carle presents the names of the animal baby, mother and father. For example, in the lion family, there are a cub, lioness and lion. And, a group of lions are a pride.

Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too? ends sweetly. The closing line is “Animal mothers love their babies just as yours love you.”

An outing to the zoo, is a nice follow-up to reading the board book. Take the book and compare the pictures to the actual animals.

Eric Carle does the illustrations as well as the prose. As always, he uses earth colors with broad brush strokes. The paint is applied thickly adding texture.

If you are interested in adding this picture book to your child’s library, the book is available from Amazon.com. Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too? makes a great gift for young children. There are Spanish and Arabic versions available, too. Just click the below link.
