My Best Friend

by Pat Hutchins

Published by Greenwillow, 1993
32 pages
ISBN: 0-688-11486-5

Ages 2-4

The young child narrator admires her best friend for all the things she can do well - run fast, climb high, jump far and even eat spaghetti with a fork. But when this impressive individual accepts an invitation to a sleep-over, she surprises her host by seeing monsters where there are only curtains blowing in the breeze. Brightly colored, stylized illustrations depict the best friend who-can-do-no-wrong as being just a little bit older than her young devotee, making the story's resolution all the more satisfying for young readers. Both of the young friends are Black. CCBC categories: Books For Babies And Toddlers; Picture Books.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
