Happy Roo Year
It's Rosh Hashanah
They think about the year gone by.
They celebrate and schmooze.
They’re really just like you and me—
except they’re KANGAROOS.
Join a kooky cartoon-y kangaroo family in the Australian outback as they celebrate Rosh Hashanah! Learn about the traditions of the Jewish New Year in this rhyming board book, as a community of rambunctious ‘roos celebrates the holiday.
