Does A Kangaroo Have A Mother Too? By Eric Carle

Recommendation: Highly Recommended

By one of my favorite authors, Eric Carle, this delightful picture book will please the young audience it is intended for.

Positives: Eric Carle is the master of the simple question and answer books he has made popular. Once again, we learn about animals and families through the simple text and the colorful and unique illustrations.

Negatives: None

Talking Points: In your Bible turn to Genesis 1 and learn about the creation of animals. Just like humans, they are to be fruitful and multiply according to their kind. Just like humans, most animals care for their young and teach them how to survive in their natural habitat. Also talk about the differences between humans and animals. Genesis 2 tells us that God gave man dominion over the animals. Also, humans are the only creation to be made in God’s image.

Age Level: 0-5
