Mem Fox always delivers! Koala Lou is a story about a young Koala who believes that her worth comes from what she can do rather than who she innately is. Despite her mother’s frequent reminders that she loves her no matter what, Koala Lou puts pressure on herself to be the best, to win, and that only then will she be deserving. An astute read for the kid who views their worth as synonymous with perfection. This book gives a clear message to debunk that myth, with poignant words by Koala Lou’s mom, reminding her that loves Koala Lou for who she is, and not for what she accomplishes.
