Unlikely Friendships for Kids: The Monkey & the Dove: And Four Other Stories of Animal Friendships

by Jennifer S Holland

Workman Publishing Co | March 24, 2013 | Hardcover

Unlikely Friendships for Kids: The Monkey & the Dove: And Four Other Stories of Animal Friendships is rated 3 out of 5 by 2.
Unlikely Friendships is a phenomenon. It''s a runaway New York Times bestseller with more than 260,000 copies in print in less than half a year;  a book with its compelling message of hope and friendship and differences overcome. Temple Grandin called it ". . . amazing. It shows the power of friendship."

Now Unlikely Friendships is rewritten for younger readers: Unlikely Friendships for Kids, a series of hardcover chapter books for children, ages seven and up. Here are three collections each with five of the clearest, most interesting stories from the original book, like the monkey and the dove or the leopard and the cow. Chapter books give young readers a strong sense of accomplishment, and these heartwarming animal stories, with their incredible photographs and inexplicable mysteries of attraction, their focus on friendship, love, and the ways that creatures of all different species can find common bonds of affection, will keep kids turning the pages to find out about the unusual ways animals help each other and discover the love of new friends.

Each is a perfect gift for young animal lovers, and a lovely subject to help kids get reading.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect read Wonderful stories for earlier/intermediate readers. My eight year old daughter was grinning ear to ear reading the simple stories.  The book is not a "picture book" - it's a reader book with lovely photos.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Endearing pictures The narrative is very uninteresting to small children who are interested in the pictures. The narrative is also uninteresting to adults. The pictures are the only thing this book has going for it.
