she is my best friend i think
i never had a best friend so i'm not sure
but i think she is a really good best friend
because when we were drawing
she drew me
and i drew her.
What is a best friend, if not someone who laughs with you the whole entire day, especially when you pretend to be a pickle? This pitch-perfect picture book is a sweetly earnest, visually stunning celebration of the magic of friendship.
* "Fogliano has a knack for capturing the emotional tenor of very specific little kid experiences, and her latest, in collaboration with Tamaki, is no different. . . . Tamaki's masterful grasp of faces and mirthful body language, echoed in the looping, lively movement of the plants and animals in the background, is a captivating complement to Fogliano's plainspoken but evocative text, and the combination is sure to resonate with anyone who's ever made a fast friend."--Booklist, starred review
* "An honest and affectionate representation of the way two kids can just find the same wavelength. . . . Listeners will doubtless want to talk about their own wonderful friendships in response, and those skittish about new situations and people may find this a reassuring reminder that they can be wonderful."--BCCB, starred review
