This book deals with the topic of friendship for young children between the ages of 3 – 5 year olds. The cover page is bright, and colorful. It shows two children sharing a book together as they are sitting in bed with the covers up to their waste. This book illustrates the things that friends do together. It answers the, “What it means to be a friend question”. All preschoolers can identify with this book because the concept of friendship is very important to children within this age group.

This book could read together by two friends. They can each read a page or read the book and then the other friend reads. The class may be talking about whose important in our lives, this book would be good to read then. Many children have someone who they consider their best friend so they can give reasons why that person is their best friend. Students might be surprised to see that other students have the same reason why someone is their friend or make new friends by doing this.

This was a cute picture book, although I did find myself wishing that the first little girl had been better at something then her best friend, besides not being afraid. I think I just needed a sense of balance. I think it's a great picture book for story time though and I might just be being weird about the lack of balance. I also really liked the illustrations.

My Best Friend is a cute early-read book that demonstrates each person is different and can compliment another person. One little girl seemed to be perfect at everything than the other little girl. Then, the little girl who seemed not as perfect saved the day at the end. I would use this book when introducing working with partners/reading partners.

This book could be used to explain how each person is differnt and how we all have our stregths and weaknesses. I would reccomond this book to a child if they felt like they "are not good at anything" because it shows how sometimes we don't notice our own strengths.

Did not enjoy the message at all in this book.
