An adorable book about Lily's first and only love, her toy blue kangaroo. It's a very simple story, but the art is well done and affectionate. A quick read that shows why buying lots of friends and toys doesn't matter, you only need one.

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.
