If you love cute baby animals, come spend the day in the Australian outback with this adorable and bouncy kangaroo joey. From Ella Bailey's acclaimed series of beautiful and educational picture books comes another tale of how one young animal friend spends his day. He's only a little kangaroo, but that doesn't stop him being curious and learning all about life in his corner of our big blue planet.



Really factual but nice pictures and lots of animals to spot

Lots of new information to learn

I thought that was beautiful. The kangaroos haven't got water and plants. They must go to a forest with water and plants. I think we don't have waste water and we don't have cut trees. I liked Joey the best because he went to explore and was very bold. I would recommend this book to my friends.
