What Does a Koala Bear Need? (1976)
By Jane Belk Moncure
Illustrated by Helen Endres
I spotted this 1970s children’s picture book while volunteering with our local library’s Youth Services Department a few weeks ago. The book compares the needs of a baby koala with those of a human child – so it gets a bit strange at points. But the pictures of the koala are cute. (Can you tell I love koalas?)
This seems a perfect way to announce it – yes, it’s official – I passed my graduate exams yesterday!
