‘The Koala Who Could’ by Rachel Bright and Jim Field

The Koala who Could is a story about a cautious Koala bear who likes to stay up high in his eucalyptus tree, safe from the animals and hectic life on the ground below him. His friends always ask if he would like to come down and play but he always declines until one day he is forced from his tree! Once on the ground, Koala realises how much he has been missing and how fun it actually is. The Koala shows how easy it is to let fear stop you from doing things. This is a good book to demonstrate how courage could have been used and to help children realise that sometimes the things that you find scary aren’t as daunting as you imagine.
