Presentation Description

Invite Mamma Kangaroo (tail, ears, smile and all) to read her story about her quest to find her precious little one. This reading can be followed with interesting facts about Joey's friends (mostly Australian animals) and an invitation to ponder what we look for outside of ourselves and, in the end, we have to find it within. Some children answer their sunglasses when they are on top of their head, but others have much more beautifully profound answers.
