A Friend Is...
For many reasons and through many seasons, people need friends in their lives. Whether sniffing a sweet flower or star gazing, building a snowman or jumping into a pile of leaves, ice skating or playing hide and seek…who better to share everything with than a friend?
What I loved: This is ultimately a very simple read that would make a great gift book for the friends in your lives. The book completes the sentence started by the title with descriptor words, leaving only a few words on each page. The illustrations are just as lovely as the one on the cover, capturing many animal friends in action, sharing the snow, flowers, and more together. A simple book, this would work for many ages, starting at older infants and up. This would be a particularly poignant gift for friends at transition times, such as preschool graduations or when one friend is moving.
Final verdict: Simple, lovely, and heartfelt, A FRIEND IS... is a sweet picture book that captures the joys and triumphs of friendship. Recommend for infants and up, as the short text and lovely illustrations as well as the sweet message will work for many ages.
