A FRIEND IS... is a sweet picture book to share with friends. This book describes the many things friends can be alongside adorable photos of animals in various seasons and scenarios. The text is very simple and poetic and captures the many joys of friendship throughout.

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.
