Baby Kangaroo

Did that title grab your attention? Who doesn't love a baby kangaroo? Okay, I know there are some people who probably don't care but I'm not one of them. 

So, why the title? I got to hold a baby kangaroo this week!! He was the sweetest little animal. I now want one hahaha Yeah my husband didn't think it was a great idea either 😉 Maybe one day!

You might be asking "Where did I get to do something like this?". I work in an elementary school and an Education Program from the Barn Hill Preserve out of Delaware brought a few of their animals to our schools. They did a fantastic job. The students even had the opportunity to get their picture with a few of the animals. An excellent program. You should check them out

You might not know this about me, but I like to put a lot about my life and my friends into my books in subtle ways. For example: in Imagination Destination, the two main characters, Kali and Tuxedo, are my real cats. If you look real close to one of the illustrations you will see real pictures of them in frames. The baby kangaroo has officially made his way into my current work in progress.  

Here is a pic of the little guy:
