Item description for Hal Lil Kangar Aidan Um?: Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother Too? by Eric Carle...
Eric Carle offers a beautiful way for parents and children to share the knowledge that love crosses all boundaries and ties all creatures on this earth together. Eric Carle's colorful collages of animal babies with their caring and affectionate mothers offer small readers visual delight as well as comforting reassurance.. Target audience: 3 - 5 years old.. The playful question-and-answer text invites children and adults to read aloud together. Repetition of key phrases (Do animals have mothers, too? Of course they do - just like me and you) helps preschoolers take the first step toward reading readiness. And the game like format makes it easy and fun to discover more about the world of nature and to learn the common names of some familiar - and some not-so-familiar - animals.. A bonus page at the back of the book lists the correct but sometimes surprising names of animal babies, their parents, and groups. Book written in Arabic.

More About Eric Carle
The secret of Eric Carle’s books’ appeal lies in his intuitive understanding of and respect for children, who sense in him instinctively someone who shares their most cherished thoughts and emotions.
The themes of his stories are usually drawn from his extensive knowledge and love of nature—an interest shared by most small children. Besides being beautiful and entertaining, his books always offer the child the opportunity to learn something about the world around them. It is his concern for children, for their feelings and their inquisitiveness, for their creativity and their intellectual growth that, in addition to his beautiful artwork, makes the reading of his books such a stimulating and lasting experience.
Eric Carle has received many distinguished awards and honours for his work, including, in 2003, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for his lifetime contribution to children's literature and illustration.
Carle says: “With many of my books I attempt to bridge the gap between the home and school. To me home represents, or should represent; warmth, security, toys, holding hands, being held. School is a strange and new place for a child. Will it be a happy place? There are new people, a teacher, classmates—will they be friendly?
I believe the passage from home to school is the second biggest trauma of childhood; the first is, of course, being born. Indeed, in both cases we leave a place of warmth and protection for one that is unknown. The unknown often brings fear with it. In my books I try to counteract this fear, to replace it with a positive message. I believe that children are naturally creative and eager to learn. I want to show them that learning is really both fascinating and fun.”
Eric Carle has two grown-up children, a son and a daughter. With his wife Barbara, he divides his time between the Florida Keys and the hills of North Carolina.
Eric Carle es el creador de mas de setenta libros ilustrados para ninos.
Nacio en Syracuse, Nueva York, pero a los seis anos de edad se traslado con sus padres a Alemania. En 1952, tras graduarse de la prestigiosa Akademie der Bildenden Kunste de Stuttgart, logro cumplir su sueno de regresar a Nueva York.

Nice book Sep 5, 2007
I am a big fan of Eric Carle's books. So, when I found this book in Arabic, I got it right away. Because I had a difficult time finding good Arabic books for my daughter, I always try to describe both good and bad things, with stress on the bad (just, cause I had specific needs in the books I get)
- This book is meant to teach about Animals (really mammals) - It is really awesome that this book is written with ALL the diacritical marks (tashkeel), which makes it an awesome book for kids who are learning to read and write. - It is rather Lebanese oriented Arabic (like most books in the market), so the animals have Lebanese names, not classical Arabic nor Egyptian (my dialect of choice). Not such a big problem, when reading to your child, cause it is an easy alteration. - It is a very simple book, with on paragraph repeating on every page, with the change of animal. - on the plus side, you get at the end of the book, the name of the baby animals, the female and male when applicable and what the herd is called. This is really fun information. - Lastly, it is for 0-3, because of its simplicity.
