Synopsis

Will I always be little, Mama? Will you always take care of me? Little Kangaroo asks Mama. What if I became an apple tree? A teddy bear? A star? Here is a warm, imaginative story that gently reminds young ones of a parent's unwavering devotion. No matter how her child grows or changes, Mama will always be there. Sunny paintings and collages, genuinely evocative of child's world, make this a distinctive bedtime book.
