Award-winning author Catherine Thimmesh's delightful rhymes and adorable photos of unlikely animal friendships make this board book perfect to read aloud to young animal lovers!
What makes a camel friends with a Vietnamese pig? Or a wild polar bear pals with a sled dog? Author Catherine Thimmesh makes us wonder at the beauty of unlikely animal friendships. Because the stories behind these friendships are true, they give readers insight into animals and the rhyming text shows the audience that support and love for another crosses all divides. This book also expresses tolerance of differences and makes us look at the kindness of animals—and humans—a little differently. Because they were there at just the right time, photographers in Siberia, India, Africa, the U.S., China, England, Germany and Japan were able to capture the truth and mystery of these existing friendships and allows us to appreciate them in this new board book format.
"Thimmesh uses a simple rhyming text and stellar color photos to celebrate unusual friendships...The photos radiate trust and warmth, and the text is soothing and reassuring."—School Library Journal "Thimmesh hops on the cuteness bandwagon with this collection of 13 animal duos who met by chance and, for a time at least, showed mutual curiosity and affection."—Booklist
