Do You Want to be My Friend?: 01/11/10
With Sean now reading, Harriet likes to have books on hand that she can read to herself without help. Her selected books are either ones we've read dozens of times together or picture books. Among her picture book favorites is Do You Want to Be My Friend? by Eric Carle.
In this mostly picture book, a little mouse follows a series of tails from page to page hoping to find a friend. What he mostly finds are disinterested animals.
The illustrations are typical Eric Carle painted paper collages. The animals are colorful and Harriet has fun pointing out all the different types shown in the book.
For a parent reading the book, it's thankfully short. It's perfect for nights when I'm too tired to handle a book with lots of words but Harriet wants to share a book together.
