Friends by Eric Carle

Cover for Eric Carle's FriendsI came across this book in my walk through Barnes & Noble today and thought “how precious”. It is the very simple story of a boy who searches through mountains and valleys, trekking a long way through trees to find his friend who moved far, far away. He happens to be a white boy, his friend happens to be a brown girl and in the end, they get married. There is no mention of the fact that the two are different as he goes on his adventure. The illustration is inviting and the book is much more of a display of Eric Carle’s illustrations than of the story. I so like the message of marrying one’s best friend and the fact that the couple resembles so many of our children’s parents.

Recommendation: Recommended; Ages: 3-Adult
