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 level 1 reader 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!

"Cute, cuddly koalas are often mistaken for bears, but this book dispels that and many other myths about these lovable marsupials. Koalas’ ecosystem, life cycle, feeding habits, and social behaviors are all discussed in straightforward detail." --Booklist
