Review by Madison, My Daughter (verbatim)

It’s funny because baby kangaroo has it’s eyes open on the first page and then the baby kangaroo falls asleep in the pouch and the mother doesn’t even notice.

My Review

Obviously the illustrations are what impressed my daughter the most.

A great book of compare and contrast on the abilities of many animals with a subtle touch of rhyming words.

The illustrations are cute and I enjoy seeing the canvas stitching details. I also enjoyed the flow from animal to animal as the scenery continued along the way.

I’m a fan of the board book as paperbacks usually see much more wear and tear around our house.

Madison was able to read this mostly by herself. A few words she stumbled on such as: slither, stampede, wallow, and trample. For a 1st grader I think that’s pretty good but after reading it a few times now she can handle them much better now.
