Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too?
Of course they do -- just like me and you! From baby kangaroos, called joeys, to baby elephants, called calfs, every kind of animal has a mother. Inside this playful and colorful book you will see all sorts of different babies with their mothers, all with one thing in common: Their mothers love them very, very much -- just like your mother loves you! Come right in and meet...more
Mindnumbingly boring text - the same question and answer 12 times over.
The illustrations are typical Eric Carle - I'm not a fan of his illustrative style, but many other people love it.
The final page gives a list of the names of babies, parents and groups of the animals featured in the book. I remember loving these factoids when I was a child, but who can be bothered learning all the terms of venery when your an adult (the on...more

The book is long and in the shape of a rectangle. The endpapers of the book are very colorful. They look like paint brush stroke going all different directions. It looks like the background is painted a blue and then with all different color paint brush stroke all over. The title page, dedication page, and publication page are all into one, which this makes it hard to find what you need from these three pages. The page lay...more

This book names a whole bunch of different animals and it is asking if all of these types of animals have mothers. Every animals named, the answer is, Yes (animal) has a mother, just like me and you. it names animals such as kangaroos, lions, penguins, swans, fox's, and all of the animals have mother too, just like me and you. It then asks at the end, so animal mothers love their babies? It responds with, Yes! Yes! of corse they do, Animal mothers love their babies just as yours loves you...more
I cannot recommend this book. I am troubled by the language. Since this book is read to our little one several times a day it is important that the language be correct. I'm not happy that the words you and me are used (as opposed to you and I). Also, (I could be wrong about this) I don't think a sentence should end in the word too.
I am not suggesting that I have a superior grasp of the English language. But I do want to properly teac...more
At the end is the kicker question, "Do animal mothers love their babies?" Of course!
The very end gives a short blurb about each animal that names what the animal baby is called, its mother and father, and what the collective noun for a group of that animal is.
To top it all off, Carle's paintings are a...more
> Shows that animals have parents
A GPS science standard for Kindergartners is that they are able to identify pictures and animal parents and their offspring. This book helps to builds a foundation with the students in the class that animals have parents as well. The back of the book reviews the animals in the book and the correct name for the baby animal (i.e. Lion and cub). Moreover it helps students to also begin classifying anima...more
(The Tiny Seed ,From Head to Toe, 10 Little Rubber Ducks, Have You Seen My Cat?)
I'd have to say I like this one better than the tiny seed and have you seen my cat but not as much as I liked 10 little rubber ducks.
My daughter was more interested in saying babies then what I wanted her to say which was point to them and say mother kangaroo or whatever animal it was at 29 month old.
I like it but not enough to buy it for her collection.
For the parents who read the book aloud, it's thankfully short with the question only asked twelve times. It's a bit mind numbing to ask the same question again and again and it lacks the drama of the very si...more
Enjoyability for parent: almost none
Except for watching Abigail's head shake yes or no as to whether she thought the next animal would have a mother, then a giggle when the answer came up, this book was boring after page 2.
But the illustrations are Eric Carle standards, which means fun and colorful.
