My daughter and I love the book Will You Be My Friend? It is the sequel to Guess How Much I Love You? I read that to her for years when she was a baby and a toddler. Now, she’s reading the sequel to me!
Will You Be My Friend is all about a little hare that goes out for adventure while his dad is busy, the young hare meets a new friend and they have a wonderful time playing together.
The story reflects a common moment in my life with my daughter where I am busy with work or housework and unable to play. My daughter is often disappointed at first, but soon finds something to do on her own.
As an only child, she has learned to make friends on her own. The book reflects the simplicity of making friendships when you are young. It takes a few words of exchange before the hares are playing together.
As parents, we cannot entertain and schedule every moment for our children. It is important for them to be able to play on their own and learn how to make friends too.
This enchanting story about friendship and the joy of making a new friend is a breath of fresh air.
I loved that it brought on a dialogue between me and my daughter. We talked about the word heather. She had not seen that word before reading Will You Be My Friend?
We talked about the game of hide and seek between Tipps and Little Nutbrown Hare. Why did they both hide? Has that happened before when you were playing hide and seek?
Like I mentioned, the new book, Will You Be My Friend? Is the sequel to Guess How Much I love You? By Sam McBratney. Guess How Much I love You? has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide and is translated into 53 languages.
It is often given as a baby shower gift. That is actually where I got it. Guess How Much I Love You? is typically listed as one of the most popular children’s books of all time!
The sequel Will You Be My Friend? Has promises to be just as popular! It is a fun read that you and the family will love.
