“Rise and shine, little kangaroo,” Joey’s mom said. “Time for your first day of Kangaroo Kindergarten!” Joey opened his eyes. The light blinded him as he peeked out of his mother’s pouch. “Can I have some waffles for breakfast?” Joey asked. “Of course,” said Joey’s mom. “I already made them for you.” When Joey finished breakfast, brushed his teeth, and packed his backpack, he hopped all the way to school. He saw his friends from preschool. Peggy Pig, Tina Turtle, and Gary Gecko. He met a new friend too, Anna Alpaca. Joey knew Kangaroo Kindergarten would be lots of fun!
