Outstanding, Preschool, Primary, Animals, Funny, Koala
Warren the Koala would like the whole world to know that he is not a bear. He is a marsupial, like kangaroos and possums. He doesn't eat fish or frighten hikers. He doesn't even live where bears do. He lives in Australia. There are no wild bears in Australia. Using diagrams and examples to demonstrate, Warren explains politely and eventually screams loudly in protest, but no matter what he tries, everyone still calls him bear.
