My Life in the Wild: Kangaroo by Prof Phil Whitfield, Animal Planet

From the earliest moments as a joey, secure in the comfort of his motherOs pouch to popping its head out and spending time out of the pouch, to its ability to learn to balance on its thick long tail, up through building the strong back legs that empower them to jump up to 30 feet in front of them, this book follows the entire lifecycle of the charming kangaroo. Endnotes explain fascinating facts about the kangaroo and a glossary builds scientific vocabulary.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
