I Love You, Blue Kangaroo is about a little girl named Lily who loves her blue kangaroo so much and every night she tells kangaroo that and they fall asleep in each others arms. Eventually, family and friends get Lily a new stuff animals and Lily begins to love them and blue kangaroo gets closer and closer to the edge of the bed and he cant sleep. He begins to think Lily will forget about him. One night, Lily's bed is full of stuffed animals and blue kangaroo falls out of the bed. He makes his way to Lily's brothers bed and sleeps there. Lily's brother is playing outside with blue kangaroo and Lily gets mad and takes him back. Lily's mother says she has so many stuffed animals and let him have just one. She says he can have all these other stuffed animals but not blue kangaroo. So, Lily remembers who was originally important to her and she will never love any stuffed animal as much as she loves blue kangaroo. This was such a cute book and I was even starting to get sad for blue kangaroo when Lily started pushing him aside and forgetting about him. Sometimes that happens in real life with our friends but we will always remember who are true friends are. I really enjoyed this book and the illustrations were cute. I'm sure children will love this book as well. ( )

Book description
Lily is given many new cuddly toys by a number of grown-ups. Each time she receives a new toy she includes it in her bedtime routine of telling it how much she loves it and tucking it into bed beside her. Her favourite old toy Blue Kangaroo ends up further and further towards the end of the routine (and the bed) until one night he falls out of bed and makes his way to Lily's baby brother's bed. When Lily finds the baby with Blue Kangaroo she gets angry and then offers him every single one of the other toys in exchange for Blue Kangaroo. The baby keeps all the cuddly toys except Blue Kangaroo who is firmly back in Lily's arms.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440415497, Paperback)

A heartwarming, comforting tale of sibling rivalry, loyalty, and lasting love.

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?
