Book Review: Pouch! by David Ezra Stein

Pouch!

Pouch! by David Ezra Stein is yet another wonderful find from the New Books shelf at our library. I thought M, who is almost 3, would love to read about a mama kangaroo and her baby, and I was absolutely right. Pouch! is the story of Joey, who is ready to explore the world outside of his mama's pouch. But every time he hops out and meets a new animal, he gets scared and yells "Pouch!" as he jumps back to the safety of his mama.

M loves this book. She says, "That's a funny book!" and giggles when Joey yells "Pouch!" She also giggles when Joey meets another kangaroo and they start laughing themselves. The illustrations are fun, with Joey's expressions clearly shown. And the lesson of learning to separate from mom is well done with simple words and actions. I definitely recommend this as a read-aloud for preschoolers.

This review was written based on a copy of Pouch! that I borrowed from the library.

  1. Sounds like a wonderful, cute book. I'm expecting our first child, and I think I'll add this to my wish list for the baby's library.

  3. That looks really cute. We'll be studying Kangaroos in a little bit, and I bet that'd be a fun one to read if I can find it.
