Thursday May 14th ~Ms Catherine’s Storytime

Dear Parents & children,

Happy belated “Mother’s Day” to all our wonderful mother’s in our Saint Maur community. I want to share a book by Eric Carle who celebrates mothers in our animal kingdom called, 

Does a Kangaroo have a mother too?


Please take a look and a listen HERE

*Please note: Just towards the end of my story reading there is an unintentional pause for a few seconds thanks to my internet. You can still hear me though.



Questions to ask after the story:

  1. Can you remember what animal was on the first page? A big clue, she comes from Australia! 
  2. What animal has a long neck? Why do you think they have one?
  3. Which animal lives in the ocean?
  4. Which animal has a long trunk? Why is it so long?
  5. If a male lion is called a lion, what do you call the female?
  6. What do you call a baby elephant?
  7. What is the name of a baby kangaroo? Can you remember what a mother kangaroo is called?
