Brimming with enthusiasm, this playful story has a friendly, pleasant appeal.
Full of adorableness… Using just one word per page, Pritchett has crafted a basic but oh-so-endearing story of friendship. Younger readers will love the expanding cast of animal characters, while slightly older readers will appreciate that it’s a book they can read aloud.
