Bounce Back! © is a children’s book story around the kangaroo character Dr. Rooby Bounce and her family. Her husband, Boomer, is an outback firefighter and her son, Josey, a blossoming hip hop artist and DJ.
We watch as Josey has to not only deal with the pandemic related lockdown of not going to school or seeing his friends, but also the fear that his ER doctor mother (Dr. Bounce) may get sick while treating others inflicted with the COVID-19 virus.
This is a fun, light-hearted, yet emotional journey as we watch Josey grow stronger and more compassionate. By the end of the story, when the community is joyously reunited, Josey shares the first song that he wrote during the lockdown, encouraging others to keep their heads up, Bounce Back!
