Listen to an audio clip

Here is a grand picture covering the two open pages before you of a park in Australia, which is where wallabies are found. It is a lovely summer's day with a blue, blue sky and just the smallest amount of straggly white cloud. Groups of birds are flying over the tops of trees which are heavy with leaves and give shade from the hot summer sun. The park has a fence all around it so that the sheep on the hills in the distance can't stray down into the park.
There are many wide open spaces in this park, just right for hopping games and Willoughby Wallaby is hopping along as fast as he can to meet his friends, Ronnie Rabbit & Harold Hedgehog. The three friends are going to play their favourite game - hopping and jumping to see just how high and how far they can reach.
