Koalas spend most of their lives alseep in trees!

With their furry bodies and round heads, koalas are often mistaken for bears. However, these fascinating animals are actually marsupials. Readers will find out how koalas spend their time eating eucalyptus leaves and resting in the branches of tall trees. They will also find out how a mother koala's pouch serves as a safe place for her babies to sleep and eat, how koalas interact with each other, and what threats koalas face in the wild.
