Let’s give a shoutout to friends this month! Sometime friendships click in place perfectly right away; sometimes they take a while to find their fit. Today’s book recommendation is about two friends who start off a bit apprehensive of one another, but gradually warm to each other:
After I read this book the first time, I felt like I found a new friend. I hugged it all the way to the checkout line. I am a huge fan of Julie Fogliano, Molly Idle, and Juana Martinez-Neal’s work, so to see them create this book together? Pure magic! Fogliano’s lyrical text rolls off your tongue as it tells the story of two children who start off in a rocky place, but gradually become friends. And who better to illustrate than two friends in real life? Idle and Martinez-Neal blend their unique styles into one cohesive look to create a story I hope you’ll love as much as I do. This one’s a keeper!
