My daughter really enjoys this book. Very nice story. Beautifully illustrated. A good book to explore how words can be used to create a full experiential picture. We will enjoy reading this again and again.

Ezra Jack Keats does a wonderful job with his book a 'Letter to Amy'. This book brings in the beauty of friendship and making choices. This book also opens up a wonderful way to expose children to connect reading to writing. Children can also get creative ideas on how to make their own invation to their birthday or other special parties.
