Wild About You by Judy Sierra is a wonderful story of family, caring, helping and adoption! “Who’s new at the zoo? Brand new babies that’s who! Some popped from their mamas, some hatched out of eggs, and some walked right away on their long wobbly legs.” But for the pandas and the tree kangaroos there are no babies on the way and this is making them sad. An egg needs a home and the tree kangaroo steps in to adopt. He hopes that the bird will live in the tree and sing sweetly; however, the baby turns out to be a penguin! Regardless, the tree kangaroo parents love him completely. The pandas are blessed with a new family member, and in the end we are reminded that to raise a family “It takes a whole ZOO.” See this book listed in our catalog
