A Friend Like You by Tanja Askani

Askani, Tanja A Friend Like You. Scholastic, 2009. PICTURE BOO. $16.99. Tanja Askani has made a life’s work out of adopting orphaned or injured wild animals and releasing them to the wild, if they are able, or finding them loving homes. Her irresistible picture book shows unlikely pairs of animal friends interacting and then a short statement about the value of having a friend. Just the pictures of the animal pairs makes this book irresistible. What a sweet read aloud for an adult and a small child! I can see a little one carrying this around so that they can always look at the pictures. As a bonus, Tanja includes information about the animals at the end. PreK-K – ESSENTIAL.
