Friends and life. Life and friends. The two are so tightly interwoven it's impossible to imagine one being remotely worthwhile without the other. As Bradley Trevor Greive points out, "There are very few truly solitary creatures on this planet. And most of them have serious personal hygiene issues." What makes friends so special? What does our choice of friends say about us ...more

Kevyttä, suloista iltalukemista ja muistutus ystävien tärkeydestä :)

These little books are hit or miss for me. I know they're supposed to be little coffee table books, but sometimes they're boring or the pictures don't really go with the words. This one was really cute, though, and I think they did a great job of finding pictures that correlate in some way with the "story" the book tells. It's a fun fast read and great for anyone who likes books that are mostly cute photographs.

My main attachment to this particular book is sentimental, more than a regard for the quality of the writing. Greive is certainly a master of photograph-selection, and for those with a penchant for cheesy expressiveness (and I am, much of the time), it holds a poetic charm.

Hehe, this little book was a cute early Christmas present from a friend. It is loaded with funny and adorable pictures of all kinds of animal friends, odd and cute. Each picture helps continue the small story told in its captions. I really got a laugh out of this one.

This was a present from one of my oldest friends, so obviously this means more to me than 'just a read'. It's lovely - I expected it to be cloying, but it's wise, and profound. And cute photos of animals are always a winner.

I think I like this book mostly for the emotion it brings...I read this a short time after a good friend passed away and it was somehow comforting to me, not to mention that the pictures always seem to bring a smile to my face.

"By far the worst thing about friends is having them leave. Whether they move to another city or country, this is the saddest of goodbyes, especially if we know we have seen them for the very last time." - Bradley Trevor Greive

Read this little gem some time back, and as usual, love the animal photos, and the cute little comments that come with each. Well worth a read..a light, relaxing, refreshingly inspirational series of books.
Barbara
I love critters, so the photos just plain make me laugh, or feel happy cause they're beautiful. I have to reread it though to remember all the many ways we show how much we value true friendships.
Julie
I love this book. Simple story about the importance of friends and friendship...accompanied with fantastically adorable, and sometimes just plain silly, photos. My students loved it!
Emily Dentler
adorable....Received this book as a gift from a friend and it brightened my day. Any time I'm feeling blue, this picture book is sure to put a smile on my face
D.E. Boone
A good friend gave me this uplifting book. I love the pictures and the sentiments they convey. This is an enormously delightful book and makes a great gift.

I am lucky to have a friend like the person who gave me the book or is she lucky to have a friend like me? :p
Natalie
I don't really care about the schmaltzy friendship message...it had cute pictures of animals!
Andd Becker
Teachers can encourage children to supply their own captions for the photos of animals.
Lindsay

Christine
