Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too?

Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too?

by Eric Carle
Beautiful illustrations show that animal babies, like human children, have mothers who love them! Eric Carle's gorgeous collage illustrations and playful text encourage children to learn about animal mothers and their babies. The story, written in repetitive text using a question-and-answer format, invites children and adults to read together. The end of the book contains a page that provides readers with additional information about the names of baby animals, their parents, and the correct animal group name.
