The Kangaroo Pouch By Sarah Phillips Pellet
I received this book in the mail the other day:
The Kangaroo Pouch A story about surrogacy for young children
By Sarah Phillips Pellet
Illustrated by Laurie A. Faust
Forward by Gail Taylor, Founder of Growing Generations and Fertility Futures, LLC
What a cute story! It's a very sweet approach to what can be a tough subject to explain to children. Sarah does a great job telling the story of a kangaroo family who can't have a baby on their own. The story is told by a young kangaroo named Oliver. Little Oliver's mom offers up her pouch so that this other kangaroo family can have a baby. The book offers just enough information on the surrogacy process without being too much for a small child to understand. The pictures are darling and the story made me laugh and smile.
My children have read this book over and over throughout the weekend. It's a story that can be enjoyed even without knowing anything about surrogacy.

As I've been approached by authors and as I've approached others, I've been inspired to write my own book. But some of you already knew that....
