If I Were a Kangaroo
I'd pick you up and carry you
In my pocket, sleepyhead,
And hop you gently off to bed.
It's time for sleep, and this fun-to-read rhyming tale envisions the bedtime rituals of animals from whales to otters, squirrels to gorillas.
So curl up, imagine your favorite animal, and...zzzzzzzzzzz.
There aren't enough good things I could say about this book in order to explain how much I love it. It's cute and fun and just so darn well-written. They rhymes roll off the tongue easily making it so much fun to read again and again like you'll have to once a child in your life falls in love with it.
The story shows many different animals and the things they will do for their young. There is such a warmth in the middle of these pages. It's as if reading it aloud, creates this feeling of love and care.
A warm and enjoyable story that is one of the better children's stories I have read.
