Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Though written in verse, That's What Friends Do is essentially a friendship instruction manual. According to the author, friends find you when you're lost, comfort you, welcome you, wait for you, forgive you, and help you face your fears. Cave enriches her simple language with several poetic devices, among them repetition and rhyme. Lightening the text, the artwork is bright and cheerful. The main characters are depicted as animals giving the book a more playful feel. Friends could be used by elementary school counselors in friendship groups or as part of classroom discussion. On first reading the book didn't impress me much, however every reading hence I have become more enamored with it. This book itself is a gift of friendship. I'll be adding it to my list of favorite gifts for children and using it as a token of peace for estranged adult friends. The message of friendship is important for all ages. 2004, Hyperion Books for Children, Ages 2 to 6.
—Mary Helen Sheriff
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-This treatise on friendship is wrapped in the goofy guise of a relationship between a large pink creature that's a cross between a hippo and a dog, and a short animal with a long nose and orange-and-yellow striped skin, who narrates the story. At first, the smaller creature describes being lost, hurt, or simply shy and tells how the larger friend is there to help. Later, the two of them fight but quickly make up. Finally, the narrator is able to rescue his big buddy, who has become lost "in the woods, in the woods." The two of them fly off together in a hot-air balloon knowing that friendship is a two-way street. With repetitive phrasing and a poetic sensitivity, the text does a fine job of addressing the emotional vulnerability of individuals. It also moves the action along at a brisk pace. Besides the imaginative depictions of the fanciful characters, the artwork playfully uses color to augment their emotions-be it sunny yellow or an angry red. There is a heartwarming sweetness to this book.-Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
