KATY-NO-POCKET by Emmy Payne, H.A. Rey

A book from my early childhood.
Once, a long time ago, my father gave me a copy of this book. It’s a story about a mother kangaroo who doesn’t have a pouch to carry her joey with. So, she starts her adventure searching for a way.

If a story stayed with you, even decades have gone by, maybe there's a very good reason or a lesson why. And, that is why I so love this book. It’s a story about coping with one's own peculiarity, never giving up, and how a grain of generosity may give a pocketful of possibilities for others.

Please, find a copy for your kids today and may they also have the lesson that enriched my childhood.
Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely,
who conduct their affairs with justice.
Psalm 112:5
