He asks all of his friends and they all come up with different answers. Readers will love guessing with Josh – and luckily he is a pleased as his mother hopes he will be.

Synopsis

What's in Your Pocket by Ruth Symons

What will Josh discover in his mum's pocket? Josh loves to be close to his mum at night in her pouch, or 'pocket', as he calls it. Though, soon he must sleep on the grass like the older kangaroos. One day, Josh's mum has a surprise about what is in her pocket: It needs lots of love and care. Josh racks his brains to try and think and, after the help of several friends, gives up. What could the surprise be? And will he love it as much as his mother says he will?

A sweet story about gaining a new sibling and how children can welcome a new member to the family. QED's popular Storytime series are charming books that combine colourful illustrations with heartwarming narrative, each with its own unique message for young children.

The series is ever expanding and now comprises 36 titles.

Reviews

'A delightful book, particularly useful as a support to children about to become siblings for the first time'

'An exquisitely illustrated large format picture book depicting the Australian outback. Perfect for sharing.'
