Stick. Stone. Start out apart and alone. Stick sticks up for Stone when Pinecone won’t leave him alone. A friendship has grown. But Stick gets windblown. Stone again is alone. Stone rescues Stick. Together again… to the end.
I LOVE THIS BOOK! So simple. So relatable for little ones. Being shy. Hurt feelings. Friendship… and the hurt that can sometimes come along with it. I particularly loved that Stick and Stone even patched things up with Pinecone on the final page who apologizes for “needling” Stone too much. 😀
This would make a great storytime book as there are lots of opportunities to use an expressive voice to add to the story.
