Joey the kangaroo leaves the pouch and begins to hop about the land, where he makes new discoveries and friends. It is one very eventful day, and he continues to return "home" to his Mama who waits nearby.

We liked how Joey had both a need to explore and a need to feel safe in Mama's pouch when the new experiences became too much. This may be very much like your two-year-old, who may be exhausting you with all his adventures, but still needing to be held and comforted.
