Joey's a sweet little baby kangaroo who one day gets a wild notion. "Mama," he says, "I want to hop!" Mama's willing, but little Joey is a bit of a panicky sort. On his first outing he runs across a bee. His reaction? "POUCH!" and in he hops. On his second hop about the woods he meets a rabbit. You can guess his reaction. Trip #3 and it's a bird that freaks him out. But on Trip #4 he meets another baby kangaroo. And after both of them give a cry of "POUCH!" they realize how silly they've been. So much so that when their mamas offer a pouch to them at the end, they confidently slap their arms around one another and say with pseudo-nonchalance, "No, thanks."
Stein has style. They say that when you write fiction you should have a distinctive voice. Well, Stein's distinctive voice is in his brush.Read more ›
My toddler loves it. Great repetition too. Teaches courage and friendship.
We received this book as part of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library Program.
I read it to him and he giggled his head off. He constantly runs up to me waving it at me saying: 'tory! 'tory! (Read me this story.) He still laughs and laughs and laughs!!!
