Koala Lou is a sweet young koala bear that everyone loves--especially her mother. She often tells her "Koala Lou, I DO love you!" But as time passes, brothers and sisters come along, and Koala Lou's mother doesn't have time to tell her that she loves her anymore. Then Koala Lou has an idea--she'll train and enter the Bush Olympics! If she can win the gum tree climbing event, her mother would surely love her again, wouldn't she? Find out what happens in this tender story with endearing illustrations of a young koala's determination and a mother's love and encouragement. Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
