The Koala Bear
Some people think a Koala is a bear
so here’s a little story we’d like to share.
born down under – that’s Australia to us
they climb large trees, don’t make a fuss.
Marsupial is what they are related to
those kangaroos hopping around in the zoo.
Koalas carry their babies in a pouch
don’t talk much or even say ouch!
Have fuzzy ears and a cute black nose
their color is grey and have five toes.
They like to roam in the dark of night
so fuzzy and cute – just seem right.
