The baby kangaroo treasure hunt, a gay parenting story


Two kangaroos, Jack and Sam, a gay couple, have their own baby through a donated egg and surrogacy.


This book focuses on gay parenting and new families. By means of animals (kangaroos), this volume introduces hot topics such as egg donation or gestational surrogacy. Female kangaroos are frequently associated to pregnant women (due to the parallelism between kangaroos’ pouch and pregnancy bellies); however, in the story you find male kangaroos with similar capacity to love their joeys, protect and raise them.
