Eric Carle's trade mark style and simplicity introduces a variety of animals and the love of their mothers in this picture book entitled, Does A Kangaroo Have A Mother, too?
Each double page answers the question but with a different animal taking its turn on each page, this is due to the clever page turner slipped in at the bottom of each,
"Does a swan have a mother; too?"
Each animal dominates an entire page in Eric Carle's colourful, vibrant manner of appealing to a young child's attention. The steady pace and careful repetition make it perfect for a younger listener.
The endnotes which contains names of animal babies, parents and their groups, for each animal featured in the book, is a nice touch ensuring this picture book will still add value once your child develops his or her own reading skills.
