How Far Can a Kangaroo Jump? by Alison Limentani is a brightly illustrated animal counting picturebook. Starting with a kangaroo, the book compares the lengths of a variety of animal jumps, showing lemurs, penguins, rabbits, frogs, goats, cassowaries, coyotes, grasshoppers, chipmunks, and snow leopards in motion across the pages.
The enriched language uses great words like leaps, bounce, skip, bound, vault, hurdle, spring and pounce to describe the different movements.
This is a fun read for preschoolers and its science information is amusing.
