You are Not My Friend, but I Miss You by Daniel Kirk


You are Not My Friend, but I Miss You by Daniel Kirk

When two friends, a sock monkey and a stuffed dog toy, get into an argument during playtime, Monkey gets his feelings hurt and proclaims, You are not my friend! But when he takes his ball to find someone new to play with, he quickly learns that maybe he hasn't been a very good friend either. Soon, the two friends make up. Bestselling author/illustrator Dan Kirk uses bold and funny illustrations to convey the important message that acts of sharing and friendship are two-way streets.


.. .children will relate to Monkey's epiphany that it takes two to share. --Kara Dean Booklist (09/15/2014)

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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
