Thank you!!
My girls, 6 and 2, both enjoyed the message of this book. It's a very fast read, more suitable to the two-year old.
Great! Love it!

This is a sweet little book by Pat Hutchins of "Rosie's Walk" fame. Like always, her artwork in this one is kid-friendly; although unlike some of the drawings in her older works, this book is done in a full range of color.

The story is an absolute delight. It's about two friends, one of whom is going to stay the night with the other. After the little girl arrives, her friend is quick to point all the things that she can do better than he can. She can untie her shoes, and eat spaghetti neatly; and she can run faster and climb higher. But rather than be jealous, he exalts her virtues, which is a wonderful lesson more children(and adults) need to hear.

Pat provides a very satisfactory ending for the book when the little boy does what he does best, and his friend turns to him and says that she's glad he's her best friend.

Talking Points :::
o The artwork " My Best Friend" is bright and cheerful.

o The text is at the second grade level --AR 2.0 -- is larger than you normally find at this level.

o The age range for interest in this book probably runs from Toddler to 1st Grade, in my opinion. So this book is a great candidate for children who are reading above grade level who still like large print.

o The sentiment in the book is wonderful. The children aren't envious of what the other can do, only thankful. This makes this book a great one to read to siblings or groups of young children.

o Good Read Aloud

My 23-month-old daughter just LOVES this book. We are asked to read this book from a few times up to a dozen times a day! Not only does it echo her desire to have a companion of similar age, the activities in the book are common enough for her to imagine herself as one of the characters. When asked which friend is she, she would inevitably point at the neat one!
