KIRKUS REVIEW

It is rather a relief to have a factual book about the growth and development of the always intriguing kangaroo. Here is a story from birth to being put on his own-and a quite different story it is from the quick growing up process of most small animals. The development of the senses, with smell the first, is another new angle of approach. Told directly, with a vocabulary of perhaps second or third grade level; its content is of interest for the Read Aloud age as well. The pictures by Symean Shimin have a lyric quality that captures the poetry of the text.
