Best Friends by Mara Bergman


Best Friends by Mara Bergman

Dexter, Daisy and Lily are up to their usual doggy tricks causing mayhem in the park, chased by their young owners. Three mischievous mutts and a muddy stream should be a recipe for a disaster but instead these clever dogs bring everyone together. Soon dogs and children are all the best of friends! This warm and funny rhyming story celebrates the joy of playing outside and the bond between children and their pets.


A huge amount of fun... utterly stunning retro-flavoured art... pitch-perfect rhyming... glorious energy... a charmer. Read It Daddy! Colourful and energetic... a wonderful book! Bookbag Catchy rhyming text races you through the book and it is superb to read aloud. Parents in Touch A lovely rhyming text and bright, child-friendly illustrations, Best Friends is a joyous celebration of friendship. Library Mice This rhyming story is characterised by a terrific sense of infectious fun that appeals equally to eye and ear. Irish Times Perfect for reading aloud Carousel Definitely a book that will stand up to the many re-readings I'm sure young listeners will demand...I found myself falling for all three of those canine charmers Red Reading Hub

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

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.
