This story encourages children to discover the unique gift they each possess and can use for the good of others. Each child who discovers his or her talent develops a deep sense of inner joy and self-worth. Sadly, some children are convinced they have nothing to offer, but this lively tale of a woeful kangaroo and a wise koala will tell them otherwise. Kangaroo whimsically illustrates how she transcends her feelings of sadness and worthlessness by finding her own bliss. On the advice of wise old Koala, she does what she loves to do most of all, she jumps. All she does is done with the loving encouragement of that wise old Koala.
