With the Summer 2000 Olympics in Sydney, everyone will be focusing on Australia. In this book, children find themselves face-to-face with the champion jumper of the outback. They'll discover how kangaroos use their big hind feet to bounce high and their short front legs for boxing. They'll learn that young kangaroos are called joeys and are carried in soft, furry pouches. Illustrations on the back cover show exactly how a joey gets into Mom's pouch.
