This book has the cutest cover; it just begs to be opened. Gorgeous photographs of animals, simple rhyming text, and a short paragraph explaining the friendship are the ingredients that make this a winning combination.
Some of these animal couples have a short relationship, like the frog that gave a mouse a lift through flooded streets. Other friendships, like that of orangutan Tonda and orange tabby cat TK, lasted for years. The gentle text helps readers understand the circumstances that put the two unlikely animal friends together – and thankfully there was a photographer available to capture the moment!
Kids and adults will ooo and awww over the pictures – but the text is also a good conversation starter about what makes good friends and describing your differences and similarities.
