Hop the Kangaroo dog, daughter of the Roo family, finds it hard to learn to hop but bravely enters a race to Squish Mountain, hopping past many of her animal friends en route. Although she does not win, she is delighted with her achievement and discovers that it is the taking part, and not the winning that is important.
I loved this book! It is one of the best children's books I have reviewed for ages. The art work is superb as its colourful illustrations convey the expressions of the characters and the ambiance of each scene so delightfully.
The rhyming format is professional and offers just the right amount of text to accompany the informative pictures. Although it is essentially a simple tale, its message is one which is always supportive for young children and I would suggest that the book would be an excellent addition to any infant school library and a helpful resource for PSHCE lessons.

"When the day came for young Hop to master the kangaroo bounce...Oof! What a disaster!"
Hop is a dog adopted by a family of kangaroos. Hop very much wants to fit in and be like all her friends, but when time comes for her to learn the kangaroo bounce, Hop’s spring has…sprung!
When a friend suggests they have a race Hop has to use her other skills to keep up with the Joeys and be in with a chance of winning.
Beautifully illustrated, this book has a simple rhyming narrative and is perfect to read aloud to small children, or for older children to read to themselves.
