This story from Emma Chichester Clark's 'Blue Kangaroo' series is a lovely festive treat. It's Blue Kangaroo's first ever Christmas and Lily is very keen to make sure that there's some of everything "Just for you, Blue Kangaroo". There are lots of Christmas activities incorporated, but poor Blue Kangaroo can't live up to his desire to reciprocate with Lily or tell her how he feels. But then on Christmas Eve, while he's roaming the house looking for a way to do something for Lily, Blue Kangaroo bumps into a rather special, red-outfitted visitor...
An altogether charming little story to which children react really well. Recommended - but with the caveat that this is a reissued version of 'Just for You, Blue Kangaroo' - perhaps retitled to make it clearer that it's a Christmas book.

a heart-warming Xmas story2010年1月4日に英国でレビュー済み
Both of my kids are Blue Kangaroo fans so this was a natural gift from Santa this Xmas! They simply loved the story (they are 2 and 7 years old). We are on our way to building a Blue Kangaroo library!
