kangarooTurtle can’t run fast. Kangaroo can’t swim. Dolphin can’t walk. Three friends can’t always play together.

Sometimes feelings get hurt. We feel sad, or angry, or just plain mad.

Fortunately, one day all three friends discover that they don’t like one any better than the other. They just can’t always do the same things at the same time.

Kangaroo, Dolphin & Turtle tells of the magic of friendship, with a dose of some of the trials and hurt feelings that are part of being friends. The colorful, whimsical illustrations are a joy to look at. I lingered over each page enjoying the art work as much as I did the story.
