"A Friend is Someone Who Likes You" and Other Worthy Reads . . .

The Children's Book Review

"A Friend is Someone Who Likes You" by Joan Walsh Anglund is now out in its anniversary edition (Harcourt, $9.95). And what a treat this little book is for those who have read it and for those who now will have the chance to discover it.  The legendary Anglund began her career with this work and has gone on to write and illustrate 120 books. But this one for many will always be top of the hill. Buy it. Give it as a gift. And you will know why  "A Friend is Someone Who Likes You" is a tiny treasure.

From Houghton Mifflin comes "Bats at the Library" written and illustrated by Brian Lies. Priced at $16.00 and conceived and created by the award winning Lies, the book with its reinforced binding is a free for all of fun at the public library. The bats in the book have a ball: the readers will, too.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. 

Two very well priced and wonderfully put together books from Grossett & Dunlap are "Backyard Sports: #3 Home Field Advantage "Backyard Sports: #4 Hand-Off both by Michael Teitelbaum and illustrated by Ron Zalme.  The former has a soccer theme and the latter has flag football as its motif. Both are very nice reads.
