Sample text

Long ago, there were large forests along Australia’s eastern coast. The forests were thick with eucalyptus trees. Koalas lived in the tall trees. They ate eucalyptus leaves and bark. The native Australians gave these animals their name. ” The animals seldom drink water. They get their water from eucalyptus leaves. When the sun goes down, koalas become active. It is time for them to eat. Koalas can climb up the tallest trees. They also walk on all fours with great speed. Still, these gentle animals spend more time asleep than awake.

They bring back truckloads of green branches, so the koalas have plenty to eat. 31 INDEX For our grandsons, Orson Ridgely, Jesse Angelo, and Nathan Morris climbing, 10–11, 14, 21, 23–24, 28 drinking milk, 5, 8, 15, 24 eating leaves, 15, 21, 24 mother, 3–5, 8–10, 13–15, 18–19, 21–22, 25–26 mother’s pouch, 4–6, 8 park workers, 16–19, 26 riding piggyback, 14, 22, 25 sleeping, 12–13, 28–29 Text copyright © 2004 by Joan Hewett Photographs copyright © 2004 by Richard R.
