What shall we do, Blue Kangaroo?

Written by Emma Chichester-Clark

Suitable for: 5-7 years (Key stage 1)

Available braille grades: Grade 1, Grade 2

‘What shall we do, Blue Kangaroo?’ asks Lily – but Blue Kangaroo doesn’t know, so he says nothing. Everyone is too busy to help her, so she does some drawing, all by herself. Blue Kangaroo is most impressed. When it starts to rain, she has only him to help gather the toys in.

Listen to an audio clip

Below Lily, on the left, is Blue Kangaroo. He is sitting sideways on, looking to the right and up, towards Lily. Feel around his body to find, on the left, his tail pointing straight up, then trace up his straight back, to his pointed ear, then find the dot of his eye, then his long nose which has a black tip. Trace down to find one paw pointing upwards then his tummy and leg stretched out, supporting his body. Remember that you can only feel one paw and one leg because Blue Kangaroo is sideways on and the other paw and leg are behind the ones you can feel.
Track right and find Pussy Cat.
