What About Harry?
Harry and Sam are best friends who do everything together. Like build castles. Jump into ponds. And swing on swings.
But when Harry realizes that Sam can build bigger, jump higher, and swing better than he can, he decides he’d be happier without Sam. All by himself, Harry can be the greatest! All by himself, Harry is…
Well, Harry is…
Alone. Is being the best at everything worth it if you don’t have a friend to share the fun with?
Friends Don't Have to Be Good at the Same Things
Sam and Harry are best friends and they do everything together. One day, they decide to be kings and make crowns, castles, limos, and more. But Sam seems to be better at making things than Harry and Harry becomes jealous of the praise Sam receives.
So, Harry makes the biggest splash and decides he will be king all by himself. However, he quickly learns that nothing is fun when it's done by yourself. He misses Sam and Sam misses him. Harry decides to draw Sam a picture to apologize, and they're back to being friends.
WHAT ABOUT HARRY is a fast-paced, easy to read story all about friendship. This book was really adorable and I love the style of the illustrations. I love the theme and that Sam and Harry are bears. The main point of this story is that friends aren't going to be good at the same things, but that shouldn't interfere with friendship. Everything's better with a friend and there's no room for jealous.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to children who love bears, animals, friendship, and to teach about jealousy and forgiveness.
