#blogbookaday: I Got A New Friend

22 May

I Got A New FriendSummary:  “When a little girl gets a new puppy, they have a lot to learn about each other. The new friends can be shy, messy, and sometimes get into trouble. They get lost, but they always get found. Their friendship may be a lot of work–but at the end of the day, they love each other!

Experience the excitement and mystery surrounding a new pet (and a new friend) in this joyful picture book from acclaimed author and illustrator Karl Newsom Edwards.” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: A little girl and puppy get to know each other as friends in this adorable story. The work hard to get to know each other and when they do, they find a friend for life. I’m definitely a “dog person” and love this story that shows such a strong bond between child and puppy.

Personal Reaction: I loved how this book could be told from the girl’s perspective or the little puppy’s perspective as they each learn about each other. I thin my absolute favorite part of this story was the puppy drawn with oversized ears and adorable expressions! This book would make a great story to share in a toddler storytime with a small amount of text and simple pictures.

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
