Synopsis

Are You My Friend Today? by Gyo Fujikawa

This book is suitable for children aged 4 to 7 years old. Celebrate friendship! From pet parades and imaginary zoos to backyard picnics, summer swims and running barefoot through the grass, Gyo Fujikawa captures the joy of childhood camaraderie and play. Her best friends sing, romp, dream and occasionally argue - but always make up again. Brimming with adorable animals, busy babies and carefree children, Fujikawa's classic illustrations always charm.

Reviews

This beautifully illustrated book captures the essence of childhood in its descriptions of different settings--at the park, at school or at a picnic-and the activities of children at play. Sometimes the activities are joyful, sometimes sad (like when one of the children is having a bad day) but all of them highlight the fun to be had with one's friends. -- The Children's Book Review

About the Author

Gyo Fujikawa (1908-1999) made a career in the advertising world and also enjoyed a lengthy stint at the Walt Disney Studios, where she designed the large-book version of Fantasia. In 1957, she illustrated her first picture book, A Child's Garden of Verses. Many others followed, some of which she also wrote. Babies, published in 1963, stands as a landmark: it was the first children's book to depict infants of all races and nations sharing growing experiences. Fujikawa's books have been translated into 17 languages and are read in more than 22 countries.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
