Description

New from rising star Rebecca Cobb comes an irresistibly charming, relatable, and light-hearted picture book about first friendships. Hello Friend! tells the story of one relentlessly big-hearted and enthusiastic little girl who is insistent on befriending a certain little boy. And why wouldn't he want to be friends with her? She's very good at sharing - in fact, she insists on it, even if it's a sandwich that he doesn't like. And she's certain that being outside is their favourite thing to do, however reluctant he looks... But while he doesn't seem keen on many of the things that she loves to do, first impressions can be deceptive, and there is one thing he's very keen on after all - being friends. Beautifully illustrated and wittily observed, Hello Friend!, by the award-winning creator of Lunchtime and Aunt Amelia, is a must-read for preschoolers everywhere.

I liked the drawings and the story. It was simple and cute. I enjoyed how one friend was all energy and the other was more shy and quiet.

This sweet story is about a little girl who tries her very best to befriend a shy boy she has targeted to be her BFF. She loves to play with him, share with him, and care for him. He is reluctant at first to form any relationship with her but she enthusiastically perseveres and includes him in all her fun activities. Gradually he warms up to her and a friendship ensues. Once their bond together is cemented they reach out to others and form a circle of friends. The two discover that having friends is both fulfilling and pleasing. "Together" makes the celebration of life much more meaningful and full of joy. The illustrations are kid-friendly, uncluttered and expressive. I love their simplicity which allows the reader to focus on the text. I highly recommend "Hello Friend."
