Did you know that a baby kangaroo is no bigger than a jellybean when it is born? An extensive postscript written by Arielle North Olson and Christy Olson Kennedy has interesting information about every animal featured. As well as extending the reach of the book, it can be used by adults in planning activities inspired by it.
