Friendshape (2015)

Friendshape. Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld. 2015. [August] Scholastic. 40 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: What's so great about having friends? We're glad you asked! See, the great thing about having friends is…everything! Friends make you feel happy. Friends make you feel at home.

Premise/plot: Four shapes (circle, square, triangle, rectangle) answer the question "what's so great about having friends?" for young readers. It is a pun-filled celebration of friendships.

My thoughts: I liked this one. I liked the puns, for the most part. Adults may spot them a bit quicker than little ones. But regardless of whether the book's play on words makes you giggle or not, the book is fun and playful. It is a simple book, in some ways, but clever too.
