This is a wonderful book! I think it is my favorite by Mary Engelbreit thus far.
The illustrations are just adorable and the quotes, verses, and poems are wonderful all about friendship. I didn't realize that this book had a previous publication but this copy is perfect for children or adults in my opinion. Everyone needs a friend! I feel like a lot of it is geared more towards girls but anyone can appreciate the reminders on what friendship is about. Each page is colorful and draws you into what is being said. I took awhile to read because I loved studying the pictures, there are a lot of details! I recommend to a bit older children, but this could be read to them at a younger age.
Wonderful book and would make a great gift!
