Lily takes her blue kangaroo toy out to various places and manages to nearly lose him every time. This story resonates with my 3.5yr old who is similarly careless with her toy dog that ventures everywhere with us. The book has helped our daughter appreciate why I prefer her to keep her dog at home! She loves pointing out where the kangaroo is hiding / lost in the pictures and is quite animated at telling Lily she is about to lose her friend !! Lovely book.

This is the first book that introduces lily and blue kangaroo they have such a great friendship which my daughter could completely understand as she feels the same away about her toys. Lovely story with great illustrations about their days out and about.

Great book, after reading it a few times my daughter now says the 'where are you blue kangaroo? ' line and the pictures showed the story really well.

This is a sweet story about a little girl Lily and her favourite toy, Blue Kangaroo.  Lily takes along Blue Kangaroo on all her adventures and days out and keeps forgetting to pick him up...after a few stressful searches she keeps finding him.  But then Blue Kangaroo gets a bit nervous about being lost again so hides.  After a long search will Lily find him!?
This is an enchanting tale of a little girl and her favourite toy which is so like my daughter with her monkey...along the fear of loosing him.  
Beautiful illustrations and a journey of emotions (which all turns out ok in the end).  My daughter really enjoyed this book.

Very cute book, beautiful illustrations and a lovely story all in all. I read this to our 5 and almost 4 year old boys and especially the younger one has requested it to be read few times since we picked it up. Older boy wasn't that keen but it's probably because the main character is a little girl. I think this would be a very good book to read for those still expecting a younger sibling or have just had one.

I thought it was a lovely book about a girl who has a sibling, the illustrations were beautiful - I was just a bit freaked out about the kangaroo being alive...

The illustrations are lovely and the description of life with a new sibling is accurate (my daughter recently became a big sister). My daughter engaged with the book but became a little concerned by the part of the book at which the little girl became sad that she was not doing a good job of being a big sister. I thought the book was successful in explaining that it isn't easy being a big sister, however the introduction of the blue kangaroo didn't necessarily help the little girl become a good big sister - the story was left a little open ended.
