G’day! My name is Joey. I’m a baby kangaroo. I live in Australia! Do you want to see what it’s like to be a baby kangaroo in Australia? C’mon! Can you find me in this picture? I’m not the big kangaroo. That’s my mom. I’m the little guy down here in her pouch. Kangaroos have big, strong legs and feet that help us jump up and straight ahead. See my dad’s long legs and big back feet? He uses them to jump really high and super fast. Kangaroos live in big groups. I live with about 30 other kangaroos. There’s always a friend to play with. I’m not the only joey in Australia. Koala babies are called joeys too. Look, there’s one with his mom up in that tree. Hi Joey! I love being a baby kangaroo here in Australia. My favorite part is riding in my mom’s pouch. What’s your favorite part of being a kid where you live?
