Blue Kangaroo belongs to Lily, and Lily loves him. Every night he falls asleep in her arms. Then one day, Lily's aunt comes to visit, and she brings Lily a huggable, furry gift. Suddenly Blue Kangaroo finds himself sleeping next to Wild Brown Bear. And soon Lily receives other animals: a yellow cotton rabbit, a wiggly green crocodile, a long-eared owl. . . . The bed is getting awfully crowded, and Blue Kangaroo isn't sleeping well at all! With so many companions, would Lily even notice if Blue Kangaroo were gone?

This is one of my daughters favorite books. She has most of it memorized, word for word. We have all of the Blue Kanagroo titles. A definite winner!!
Blue Kangaroo doesn't want to share Lilly's bed with the other animals that her family were giving her. So he goes to sleep with the baby. To get Blue Kangaroo back, Lily gives all her animals to the baby. I liked it when she gave the Teddy Bear away.
This is a charmingly simple but emotionally wise tale of a little girl's very real attachment to her stuffed animal. A warm and funny story that young children will easily relate to. Also intelligently addresses several important themes--the consequences to children of having too much materially, as well as the value of loyalty and maintaining friendships. I don't agree with the Kirkus review regarding the girl's suspect motives in wanting kangaroo back. To me, it is clear that in losing her best toy friend, she fully realizes her love for him.
