A new Friend for Sparkle by Amy Young -OPTIONAL

Young, Amy A new Friend for Sparkle, PICTURE BOOK. Farrar Straus Giroux, 2017.  $16.99.
In the continuing adventures of Sparkle the Unicorn, Lucy has a friend over, Cole. Sparkle and Lucy take turns being jealous and finally learn how to all play together.
A relatable story about jealousy, friendship, and how to include everyone. While adorable, it lacked the emotional response (students are always heartbroken with the scene where Lucy sends him back) and hilarity of the first book.  The illustrations are adorable and now I really want a unicorn (goat) of my own.
