    Simple read

    Emma Kate is a very easy read, it's simple and it will keep children engaged in the book throughout the entire story. It is about a little girl who has a big imagination. The little girl has a friend named Emma Kate and the two of them do everything and go everywhere together. The illustrations are pretty basic with just two or three colors to a page but they are very detailed. Patricia Polacco got the idea for this book from her childhood.

    A surprising twist

    This book is about two friends. One is an elephant the other a young girl. You find out later in the story that one is an imaginary friend. The end really surprised me. I¿d give the book two thumbs up. I suggest you read and buy this book. Thanks to Patricia Polacco we have many wonderful books including Emma Kate. Emma Kate is a book that will entertain all who read it. The two friends have a strong bond. I really enjoyed this book and hope you do to.

    Engaging story

    Who didn't have a favorite buddy to play with? Whether it was real or not. Or maybe the favorite doll or stuffy you took everywhere. Easy for a grade school child to read and understand. I recomend it!!

    A NEW TWIST ON FRIENDSHIP DELIGHTFULLY ILLUSTRATED

    Children will easily relate to this story of friendship and how much it means to have a really good pal - a best friend, if you will. Polacco's pencil drawings and bright watercolors create an excellent contrast in her attractive illustrations. Four to eight year old youngsters will probably nod wisely as they hear about all the things Emma Kate and her best friend do together - walking to school together, eating lunch together, and riding their bikes after school. They even develop tonsillitis together! The surprise in this togetherness comes at the story's conclusion when Polacco introduces a new twist on friendship. One more engaging story from the superb Polacco who says that she modeled the elephant in this story on the character in a favorite book she read as a little girl - 'Horton Hatches the Egg' by Dr. Seuss. - Gail Cooke
