Sometimes a little CHANGE can open your world to BIG possibilities.

You see, high-up was safe since he liked a slow pace,
While the ground down below seemed a frightening place.
Too fast and too loud and too big and too strange.
Nope. Kevin preferred not to move or to change.


Kevin the koala loves every day to be the same, where it's snug and safe. But when change comes along, will Kevin embrace all the joys that come with trying something new?

An inspiring rhyming read aloud by bestselling Love Monster creator Rachel Bright and Frog on a Log? illustrator Jim Field that empowers young readers to face change with courage and delight.
