What’s in Your Pocket by Ruth Symons and Laura Watkins. Josh loved to snuggle into his mom’s soft, warm pouch to sleep at night. When Josh grew bigger his mother told him to sleep on the grass like the older kangaroos. His mother had a surprise inside her pocket, “It’s tiny, but it will grow bigger. You can play with it, but not yet. It needs lots of love and care.” Josh couldn’t think of what it could be, so he went to ask his friends for help. After asking his friends, Katie the koala, Peter the parrot, and Terry the termite he returns home. When he returns home his mother reveals the surprise–a teeny tiny joey poked his head out of her pocket! Josh thought this was a very good surprise. See this book listed in our catalog
