PreK Bits -Kangaroos

Kangaroos came to Storytime @ Malletts Creek today.
The baby kangaroos do not want to hop too far away from Mama. They know her Pouch! is a safe place to think about being brave.
Katy No Pocket is a story about Katy who was born with no pocket, and cannot carry baby Freddy with her. They have a fabulous solution by the end of the story.
What Did You Put In Your Pocket? adds surprising contents to the pocket every day of the week until Sunday when in goes the "spinky spanky hanky".
Look at Kangaroos to study photos of real kangaroos, how they look, where they live, and what they do.
