Little kangaroos - level 1

This happens in Australia. Many kangaroos are hit by cars and the kangaroos die. Some of these kangaroos are mothers. Their children become orphans.

These little kangaroos need help. There are volunteers who help them. The volunteers also take the kangaroos to schools. They show them to more people. People can even touch them.

One volunteer is a university student. He takes one kangaroo to his class. Everybody loves the little kangaroo.

Difficult words: orphan (a child/ animal whose parents are dead), volunteer (a person who does something for free because he wants to do it).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
