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