Everybody needs a buddy, whether clean or green or muddy! Everybody needs a friend, true and blue who’s not pretend. If a baby’s on the ground, elephants will gather round. Trying hard to help him stand, friendly trunks can lend a hand. This charming board book about friendship highlights the ways animals care for each other! Sweet, silly, and all true, these friendships are described in ways that children will understand. With perfect rhyming text from Ellen Jackson and bright illustrations from Maddie Frost, it’s very clear: everybody needs a buddy!
