Summary
"Did you know that kangaroos are the only large animals that hop to move -- or that they are unable to jump backward? Nature's Children series provides young readers (Ages 8-10) with fascinating information about the planet's most incredible wildlife species. Each title offers a complete picture of the animal- from birth to adulthood- and describes its place in our world, including how humans impact it and its environment."--From https://www.bookdepository.com.
