Overview

That's What Friends Are For by Florence Parry Heide, Holly Meade, Sylvia Van Clief

"Kids will take comfort in this endearing — and enduring — tale of friends helping friends." — BOOKLIST

Theodore the elephant has hurt his leg and can’t meet his cousin at the end of the forest. What a pity! Of course, all the other animals are more than willing to give him advice. After all, that’s what friends are for — isn’t it? Enhanced by Holly Meade’s vivid collages, Florence Parry Heide’s dry wit rings through this cumulative tale of a long-suffering elephant, his well-meaning friends, and a straight-talking opossum who shows them all what being a REAL friend means.
