God Bless My Friends by Hannah C. Hall, Illustrated by Steve Whitlow

As she’s gotten a bit older, Sarabeth’s new favorite thing is to pick up a book and bring it to me to read.  We’ve moved from her not being interested at all, to wanting to read several times during the day. And I love it!

She was napping when I opened the box containing God Bless My Friends, and I set the book on my desk to hopefully get my review written before she saw it.  Of course, that didn’t happen! She woke up and almost immediately found the book.  She wanted to read it right away and we sat and read it a couple of times through.  The story is a simple, sweet message that reminds kids that people come in so many different ways.  God Bless My Friends shows kids how to value the differences in us all.  To celebrate one another. And embrace the ways we can learn from our friends who are different than us.

Perfect for Little Ones Building Friendships

Sarabeth absolutely adores this book.  Once she pulled it off the desk, I’ve not been able to get it back from her! The pictures are sweet. She loves showing me all the animals and we talk about the differences.  She’s even sat and read this one to her little bear friends!  I love that this is a board book that I can trust her little two-year-old hands with.  It’s perfectly simple enough for her mind to comprehend, but I can see us reading this book for a while and talking about differences in our friends.  It’s a great teaching tool!
