About The Book
Celebrate the wonder of new friends, old friends, and everything-in-between friends in this joyful, resonant picture book.
There are many kinds of friends—old friends, new friends, friends that last a lifetime—and the day to make new friends is always near, if you look. This story celebrates all of them: who they are, where we find them, and what we count on them for.
