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.
This pair of best friends spends the day laughing, eating ice cream, drawing, and more. What are your favorite activities to do with your best friend?
The girls in this story easily become friends—best friends, in fact—before they even know each other’s names. What makes someone a good friend? What qualities do you especially like in a friend?
