Caldecott Honor winner David Ezra Stein's delightful tale of a baby kangaroo's first hops toward independence is perfect for board book audiences. Joey wants to go exploring, but at first he isn't sure he's ready to leave Mama's safe, warm pouch. Touching on a universal childhood experience, this sweet tale celebrates trying new things.

"Neatly embodying the way a young child's drive toward independence seesaws with fear of the unknown. . . . Stein once again shows his talent for creating a fresh story in a few well-chosen words and illustrating it with humor and verve." - Booklist, starred review

"Warm and inviting, this buoyant tale is hopping good fun." - Kirkus Reviews
