My Buddy, Slug by Jarrett J. Krosoczka

Alex and Slug are best friends. They do everything together--morning, noon, and night.

But does being best friends mean you have to be together every second?

Slug seems to think so! Alex tries to get some alone time--at the dentist, at the library, even playing sick--but Slug won't give him a moment to spare. Before long, Alex explodes--and Slug's feelings are bruised. Friendship isn't always easy!

It's time for Alex and Slug to figure out the meaning of "sorry"--and to learn that some folks are friends forever.

When first I held up the book my resident critics gave it a disbelieving, sidelong glance and voiced absolute dismay about `A SLUG!¿ `YOU¿RE GOING TO READ A BOOK ABOUT A SLUG,¿ `ISN¿T A SLUG, YOU KNOW, ONE OF THOSE, SLIMY, YOU KNOW, THINGS,¿ was voiced delicately in primordial shriek. I turned the first page and they, fourth grade, Wynona OK school, settled back to listen with as open a mind as they could muster. The class does take their job as critics seriously. Before too many pages had been turned the class was inching forward on the rug, gazing raptly at the book and were obviously drawn into the tale. When I finished the kids agreed `little kids will like it, but they won¿t really `get¿ it.¿ Each of my students thought the book was a good choice for `mature¿ fourth graders as well as the little kids in the target audience, `because it helps us understand more about why our friends get tired of us when we are afraid to give them some space.¿ My Buddy, Slug is a book sure to please the 'read to' crowd of 3 -7s. The book is sturdy, filled with brightly colored pictures and child pleasing setting. The work is a `read with help' for the strong reading 7s and 8s, and is a `read alone,¿ or `I¿ll read to you¿ for the 9 ¿ 10 year old set. When we choose a book to read to younger siblings or to the Kindergarten class we may be forgiven for choosing what some might view as `too young¿ even though we `really like this book.¿
