Little Kroo and Mamma Hop travel to different natural habitats around the world where Kroo is fascinated by new ways of parent-young one bonding. But why doesn’t his Mamma love him like that? What will get him to believe what she always says – that she may not love him like that, but she loves him the most in this world?


In this simple, elegantly told story, Richa Jha touches upon the one existential doubt every child’s mind faces at one point or another. The gentle pace of the book is in sharp contrast to the sheer scale of globe-trotting that the Mamma-baby duo are engaged in. Lyrical prose, a lilting assuring refrain, and adorable animals make this book a perfect bed time read. Gautam Benegal brings to life the landscapes with his magic brush strokes, each transporting the reader thousands of miles away to the real world of animals in their beautiful habitats.

    This is the perfect book to celebrate the mother-child bond and the great lengths that mothers will go to, to protect their children, keep them happy and safe. But, at the same time, it is so much more than just this. For my child, who will either cry or run away from anything remotely mushy, this book offers the perfect non-fiction mixed in – a mother and child kangaroo going on a trip around the world, through which the reader gets to explore different animals and places. In my opinion, all mothers must get this book, but especially all working mothers absolutely must get it – the illustrations show the mumma kangaroo working on a laptop, and it is oh so relatable for the children who see us on laptops all day. My 4 year old thoroughly enjoys reading this one 🙂
