Ikegami, Aiko Friends. PICTURE BOOK. Albert Whitman & Company. 2016. $16.99. Content: G.
One day at school, a new girl came. She felt different and alone, yet she wanted friends. It took her awhile to adjust, but slowly she was able to make friendships. Soon, other new and different students came to school.
Friends, while it has a great message, is not my go-to book on friendship. For the target audience, it seemed unrelatable and a little odd to have an alien as a new student from a UFO. I ended the book feeling a little disappointed.
