Koala Lou used to get all of her mother’s love and attention until her younger siblings came along! Now her mother is so busy she forgets to tell her how much she loves her. Koala Lou thinks if she does something absolutely amazing, she’ll hear those loving words from her mother once again. Let’s see what idea she comes up with as we read together!
