A nice book about a very boastful kangaroo who thinks that she is better than anyone else, but at the end a tiny kangaroo is able to jump higher than her. Tells children that nobody should be that boastful, because otherwise it could be embarrassing. ( )

This book is a fun book for children. It is a little longer than most first graders book, so it challenges those younger students who may stronger readers in their class, yet, not able to read to the advanced level.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0152048405, Paperback)

No one can jump as high as the very boastful kangaroo. But the littlest kangaroo challenges him to a jumping contest anyway. Even the very boastful kangaroo has to laugh when the very little and very clever kangaroo outsmarts him and wins the competition. Bernard Most’s resourceful kangaroo hilariously illustrates one of life’s basic lessons--that any problem can be overcome if only you put your mind to it.
