The Toy Kangaroo

During a school fund raiser, a local vendor set up a display which included several tables in the school cafeteria. He brought with him a number of miscellaneous items to sell. Among these items was a wide assortment of colorful and whimsical toys ranging in price from $1 to $5. There was a $1 table, a $2 table, a $5 table, etc.

Edvardson Publishing's founder, Roger Edwards doesn't recall why his attention was immediately drawn to a small grey toy kangaroo. And although he also doesn't remember on which table sat that particular toy, he does remember he didn't have enough money to buy it. At that very moment he became acutely aware of how his family was different from most others. Namely, they were poor.

Throughout his childhood and teenage years, his family managed to survive with the help from welfare and government financial assistance. Today, as he assess his achievements accomplished in spite of his early upbringing, He has decided to use the kangaroo as a symbol of his life's journey. Perhaps it's because the kangaroo represents strength, balance and survival. Or perhaps it's because of the memory he has of a young child who once longed for an unattainable, small grey toy which sat on a vendor's table those many years ago.
