We love reading the Blue Kangaroo stories; they are beautifully illustrated and the stories are really relevant to the age group of my children. This story is no exception. Lily loves showing off and it gets her and  Blue Kangaroo into trouble. My daughter could identify with Lily and it gave us a lot to talk about.

Our middle child is a huge fan of Blue Kangaroo and he couldn't contain his joy when the book arrived, especially as he now has his own little blue kangaroo, what a lovely addition to the book.
Since we have rather energetic kids who don't always listen and quite often end up getting hurt because they're unable to calm down this story was a brilliant lesson in listening to grownups and to think what you're doing.

My oldest daughter loved these books when she was a toddler, but this is the first time I've read one of the Blue Kangaroo books to my three year old twins and they absolutely loved it! It's beautifully illustrated, as always and has a very sweet storyline. Perfect bedtime story.

This is a book about a little girl who is stretching the rules   

My little man likes the verse and animation as I read it too him. The story is lovely and fable like which I am sure he will like as hr gets older. He likes the pictures and the adorable stuffed blu kangaroo that came with the books!

I've never heard of these stories before so I was excited to read this one to my daughter. 
It's a story about a little girl called lily and her blue kangaroo. Lily doesn't listen or do as she's told which gets her into trouble and ends up with poor blue kangaroo getting a rip in his tail. 

I think this is a good story, it's just like what most children of this age are like. This story teaches about listening and what happens if you don't listen. Lily learnt a listen in this story and I think it teaches children who read this book too. 

The pictures are lovely and the story is easy to read. My daughter sat very still and listened to it without losing interest.

This is a lovely book, what a nice surprise to have a blue kangaroo toy with the book. Sophie loves hopping blue kangaroo whilst I read the story, she sat for the whole book. I'm definitely going to get more books from this series. It's a lovely social learning book. A nice short story with a sentence per page , easy to read in one sitting. Lilly is adventurous and wants to do what all the big kids are doing and is just too gutsy and shows off and won't listen to her mum to behave. Poor blue kangaroo gets injured and Lilly can't have him back until she can behave herself. Even blue kangaroo starts to think should he stay. It all ends well. We're in love with blue kangaroo. Sophie loves hugging him whilst we read this together, she was pointing at the characters and helped turn the pages. Nice thick pages. Lovely story.
