Costa, Maria S. How to Find a Friend. PICTURE BOOK. Clarion Books (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), 2017. $16.99. Content: G.
Squirrel has moved into a new treehouse and she doesn’t know anyone. Rabbit has moved into a new burrow and hopes to find a friend. The two animals each partake in solo activities, unaware that the other is nearby. Two little slug bugs shout support to the animals, but are ignored. Will Squirrel and Rabbit find each other and become friends?!
The illustrations in this book are all in shades of blue, orange and red. The background illustrations add humor to the story. I think this book title alone will interest readers who will then find a story that they may find relatable. Overall, this is a cute story about friendship.
