The Lamb-a-rooUnknown - 2006
Humorous, endearing story celebrates family and sense of belonging Lamb is alone and sad and wants a mother. And in spite of having lots of relatives, Kangaroo is sad, too, because she has no baby of her own. When these two gentle, endearing animals happen to find each other, they immediately become a happy family--until Lamb realizes that he is different from all the other kangaroo children and attempts to fit in--with hilarious results. This sweet story, with its delightfully humorous illustrations, truly celebrates the meaning of family and is sure to become a favorite among all families.
