Do You Want to Be My Friend 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 13 reviews.
Shellie-SLP More than 1 year ago
This is a great book for young children because it has colorful illustrations. The story can lead to discussions and questions about the animals and about the social language involved with making friends. I gave this book only 3 stars because it is described as Hardcover and it is a hardcover book but it showed up as a miniature book, only 3 inches by about 4.5 inches. Nowhere in the description does it say that this book is miniature book.

Thru a mouse, children learn that in trying to make friends not everyone wishes to be yours. But, it also shows that there is always a friend out there for you, no matter what.

By far not our favorite Eric Carle book so far. I think it will be a lot more fun once a child is really talking well as a lot of the pages have no text, which allows the child (or parent!) to make up bits of story.

A mouse goes in search of a friend. He asks many creatures if they will be his friend, with a long green threat in the background. He finally finds a friend just in time to avoid the threat.

Kindergraten or First grade reading level. This book has very few words, it is great for the beginning of a school year. The book would help students learn about simply asking someone to be your friend. The book is also fun and allows students to guess what animal is going to appear on the next page. A great group book.

A little mouse is looking for a new friend but has trouble finding one until he is in danger of a horrible preditor. When he is in need a protection he finds a friend who stands by his side. This book is excellent for teaching children the importance of friendship. Friendship goes a long way. It is best for kendergarden through second grade students at a time when they are learning about the importance of friendship.
