There was once a baby koala, so soft and round that all who saw her loved her. Her name was Koala Lou. Koala Lou is the first born in a large family. She feels sad because her mother seems too busy to pay her any attention.

Perhaps if she wins the tree-climbing at the Bush Olympics her mother might notice her again . . . Koala Lou starts training right away!

One of The Little Big Book Club's classic selections, we featured Koala Lou in 2008 and again in 2015 as it is a beautiful story about love and the bond between families.

Stretched, curled, preparations,, compete,pufed, panted, blossom, Olympics, spectators and flung.

This sounds like such a fun book to read, but this is a given considering the author is none other than Mem Fox.  She is such a talented author.

A warm and engaging tale about a little koala desperate to seek mum's attention. Good to share with children, especially when there's a new sibling at home. A tale of love and compassion and one that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside. A great read for snuggle up time!
