Review: Let's Go, Little Roo

Little Roo doesn't want to go out and meet other animals.

She would much rather stay inside her mother's pouch.

So Mummy Roo tries to tempt Little Roo.

The delicious grass and fun playing with the other joeys isn't enough to entice Little Roo, though.

Little Roo has a secret though. She wants a friend, but not quite enough to leave Mummy's pouch.

So Mummy Roo makes a plan to help her joey overcome her fears.

And when Little Roo bravely emerges, it's her turn to help Little Wallaby overcome his fears and make a new friend.

The illustrations in Let's Go, Little Roo by author/illustrator, Renee Treml are gorgeous. There's a different single colour wash for each double page spread, in which the black and white images of the kangaroos roam, seen from both afar and up close.

Let's Go, Little Roo is a sweet and simple story about overcoming your fears and making friends, which can be enjoyed by readers young and old.
