Pink by Janet A. Holmes


Pink by Janet A. Holmes

A delightful picture book story of misunderstanding, longing and friendship from Janet A. Holmes. Lily loves all things pink-her boots, her bicycle, the food she eats-but she has no one to share them with. She begs an assortment of animals to play with her, but none of them is quite right. The snail is too slow, the chicken is too silly and the goat eats her clothes. Then along comes a perfect friend who is perfectly pink, too! Janet Holmes's simple, accessible text and Jonathan Bentley's whimsical illustrations combine to make this girl's picture book a must-have on the bookshelf.


High on the cuteness scale, this will be a welcome addition to preschool collections. -- School Library Journal on Have You Seen Duck?
