I found this little book, again, and smiled. I remember when I was quite young reading this book and it opened my eyes to just how many people's lives I touch without intending to. Today, as an adult, I give it as a gifts to friends to remind them of the same fact I learned years ago-We affect so many people and often never know just how many people care about us.
My grandma taught me how to read with this book. It's a great book about friendship and asureing everyone that they have a friend. I hope you read this book it's great!
This book is a treasure indeed! It was one of my favorite books many years ago. I read Miss Anglund's books over and over as a young girl. While going through books in my home recently, I came across this little book and was thrilled to find it. Her simple writing style and charming illustrations made complex ideas easy to understand when I was young. Now, I find them heart-warming and delightful. It is a book to share for all generations.
This was a favorite book of mine when I was a child. I recently came across it when I was going through some old things and was touched by its message. I recalled favorite lines and pictures. I immediately felt that my six year old niece would like this book but was sure it was probably out of print. I am pleased to find out that it is still in print and has been a meaningful book to others as well.
