Beautifully written and makes an immediate connection with readers young and older. Learning about imminent change and the way the characters deal with adjustment is something we all can relate to on some level. The author used inference and personification to relay her message hooking the reader and engaging their interest. Well crafted and heartfelt.
This stunning book is a love letter about your first best friend and the lasting impact that friendship can have. With so many friends separated by Covid, it resonates and tugs at the heart in a deeper way these days. I teared up while reading this to my children, and my husband, who overhead the reading, came into the room to say how much he was enjoying the book. This one is a true gem.
I bought this book and read it to my class, I got emotional. It's beautifully written and illustrated. It speaks to friendship and loss. Great story to read to our students, there is a lot of loss right now with distance learning and this book provides a good discussion around friendship and loss.
What a charming story - with equally charming illustrations. This is a lovely, believable story of a friendship between two girls and how it lasts even through separation, joyfully and richly and delightfully illustrated.
