What to Expect When You’re Expecting Joeys: A Guide for Marsupial Parents (and Curious Kids) by Bridget Heos and illustrated by Stephane Jorisch
Product Description: Congratulations, marsupial parents-to-be! You’re about to meet your tiny bundles of joy. They’re called joeys. Some are as small as a grain of rice when they’re born! Read this book to find out how many babies to expect, how to help them find your pouch, and what those little joeys will do in there all day long. Whether you’re a possum or an opossum, a kangaroo or a wallaby, a koala or even a shrieking Tasmanian devil, you’ll find answers to all your parenting questions here.
My Review: The author gives a step by step guide on marsupial parents. Marsupials gives birth to very tiny babies that sometimes grow in a pouch, like Kangaroos, Virginia opossum, Wallaby, Koalas to name a few. The Kangaroos are mostly found inSouth America andAustralia. TheVirginia opossum are the only marsupials found inNorth America.
Some gives birth to more than 20 but not all survive. She goes on to explain about the pouches most marsupials have to carry their babies in. And not all marsupials have a pouch and not all pouches open at the top.
The book is based on question and answer like, should I make the pouch with paper or cloth and will where will the older babies go when they move out of the pouch? Everything you need to know about marsupial parents and their newborn kids.
I don’t know if 4 years old will understand what a marsupial is or will be patience enough to sit and read this book, but I will recommend it for children age 8 and up and classroom teaching.
