With a seemingly permanent half-smile on their face, koalas are appealing to boys and girls alike. Filled with adorable photos, and carefully leveled text, this book introduces beginning readers to these furry creatures, from cub to adult, exploring where they live, what they eat, and even the way they say “hello”—by touching noses!


Students and tutors will enjoy this lively book about koalas as they organize koala facts, color and assemble a paper koala and write some jokes about koalas.
