They also learn to value what they bring into their triangle of friendship and to appreciate the times when they are by themselves! Told with sensitivity and humor, accompanied by beautiful illustrations, Kangaroo, Turtle and Dolphin is a great story for anyone who ever had to deal with the ups and downs of having two best friends.
