My Best Friend is a cute early read book that demonstrates each person is different and can compliment another person One little girl seemed to be perfect at everything than the other little girl Then, the little girl who seemed not as perfect saved the day at the end I would use this book when introducing working with partners reading partners. A little girl eagerly welcomes her best friend to spend the night She is glad to have a friend who can run faster, climb higher, and jump farther than anyone else But when the lights are turned out and the visitor is afraid, the little girl proves what best friends are for once again Hutchins captures the simple elements of a child s life in a heartwarming story, steep This book could be used to explain how each person is differnt and how we all have our stregths and weaknesses I would reccomond this book to a child if they felt like they are not good at anything because it shows how sometimes we don t notice our own strengths. I love this book about friendship, comparison, and the value in understanding that we all know different things and have different skills and that s fantastic Certainly a Hutchins book that should be widely recognized.
