Josh the baby kangaroo loves snuggling down in sleep in his mother’s pouch. One day she says he is too big for the pouch and something else very precious that he will love as soon as he sees is in there instead! Josh tries to guess what it could possibly be! 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.
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 - we love The Lion Who Lost His Roar but Learnt to Draw.
Storytime: 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.
'An exquisitely illustrated large format picture book depicting the Australian outback. Perfect for sharing.' Carousel
