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?
