Stick and StoneWritten by Beth Ferry; illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2015, Ages 3-6
is a book about a stick and a stone becoming friends by sticking up for each other in hard situations, as well as helping each other out in a crisis.
Beth Ferry uses a rhyming style in telling the story, though not all sentences rhyme.
The illustrations help to convey the points made in the text, as well as making the book simple and age appropriate.
This book is great for teaching children about friendships with different people. I would definitely recommend this book to parents who want their children to be open to making new friends and to teachers who want to teach their students what can happen if you stick up for someone. Also, I would recommend this book to teachers and parents with children that are 3 to 6 years of age.
