The Lovereading4Kids comment
The Blue Kangaroo books are modern classics, and Emma Chichester Clark one of our finest illustrators. Lily and Blue Kangaroo are friends forever and are celebrating a double birthday in this heartwarming story featuring Lily and her much-loved toy, Blue Kangaroo.
Some of our Lovereading4kids Reader Review Panel were lucky enough to read and review another book in this lovely series, When I First Met You, Blue Kangaroo!
Ava Townsend, age 5 said 'I liked the book. It was fantastic and it made me laugh because it was funny.'
and Trudy, age 5 thought - 'It's fantastic. I liked it when Lily's grandma gave her the kangaroo and I liked the end when blue kangaroo does his secret smile.'
