This lovely book describes the beautiful friendship shared by a little boy and girl. It describes how they play with each other and the different activities they enjoy. However like most things in life this is not to last and results in them having a fight. Each one tells us how they feel and how difficult it is for them to say I’m Sorry. The pictures are exquisitely drawn.

Read with You're Not My Best Friend Anymore.
A young boy and girl are best friends. They play with each other every day. And they always laugh and have fun but one day they shout at each other...can they still be friends?

The subtle rhythm of the text makes this a great choice for a read aloud. The colors and illustrations correspond with the overall tone of the book. Children will be able to relate to the emotions and feelings of shouting/arguing with a friend.
Mommy says: Oh so sweet! Perfect for the preschool set who are learning about disagreeing with their best friends and making up again. The illustrations are exquisite.

Beautiful illustrations! A story about best friends. They have a fight, but then realize they just need to say sorry and everything will be fine. Very simple.
Soft illustrations, will use this story on Sunday to teach 3 & 4 year old children in church that sometimes they need to say I'm sorry.
This is a simple book about friends who get in a fight and how it makes them feel. A book about saying sorry.
Good book for toddlers/Preschools on what happens when you fight with friends and how to makeup.

The Northern Ireland native started writing children's books when he was a teacher in his thirties, with the aim of helping out students who had trouble reading. But he continued writing for a more-personal reason: "the act of imagining simply makes me feel good," he says. The fifty-seventh book of Sam McBratney's career, and his first book with Candlewick Press, was the much-loved GUESS HOW MUCH...more
