Hello, Mama Wallaroo



From the author/illustrator team behind MEET THE MEERKAT; HELLO, BABY BELUGA; and HELLO, BUMBLEBEE BAT, a Theodor Seuss Geisel Award Honor Book, comes a simple yet informative introduction to a kangaroo-like animal from Australia, the wallaroo.

In question and answer format—perfect for read-alouds or story hours—readers learn basic facts about wallaroos: where they live, what they eat, when they sleep, etc. Patricia J. Wynne observed wallaroos at the Miller Park Zoo in Illinois to create the realistic yet kid-friendly illustrations. Back matter includes a few extra facts not included in the main narrative.

The clear, concise language and large font and generous spacing of text will encourage emerging readers to tackle the story on their own.
