What can a young kangaroo teach kids about life? If that kangaroo is Joey, the answer is "plenty." From lessons about talking to strangers to what to do when you're tempted by your peers with cigarettes, drugs, or alcohol, Joey demonstrates how a child with the loving support of his parents, can live a safe life and avoid the harm that can come any child's way. Each of these lessons is presented in clear loving language that will be accessible to the young and serve as a guide for parents looking for a way to talk about difficult subjects with their children.
