Synopsis

Heart in the Pocket by Laurence Bourguignon

In this tender tale about growing up, a young kangaroo learns that what's familiar isn't always what's best. Mama Kangaroo loves her little Jo-Jo very much, but it's time for him to leave the safety of her pocket. But Jo-Jo is content where he is, even when Mama tells him about all the amazing things he could see and do if he were to explore the world. Sweet illustrations portray the young kangaroo's fear of leaving his mother and the strong bond between mother and child.
