Does a Kangaroo have a mother too?

Does a Kangaroo have a Mother too?

Written and Illustrated by Eric Carle

Published by HarperCollins Children's Books

Oh dear, we fell into the trap of picking up another Eric Carle book we hadn't seen before but it's pretty formulaic stuff so if you're a fan of Carle's artwork, there are some neat little paper-and-paint pics of your favourite animals to look at. The text is basic and repetitive (let's face it, Carle's Hungry Caterpillar was a bit of a fluke one-off wasn't it!) so don't expect youngsters to engage with it much. 

Charlotte's best bit: The whale. 

Daddy's favourite bit: Carle's clever construction and art methods.
