He doesn’t really have a say in the matter, the little girl has so many fun things planned for them. Things that she enjoys…
At times, the activities can seem a bit overwhelming for the little boy. Then we see how the little girl, takes him to one side and he begins to feel more comfortable. She is his friend through thick and thin.
But even the little girl can feel a little insecure at times. Does the little boy like being her friend?
The story is told from the perspective of the little girl and the simple phrases so accurately depict a child’s thought process. The illustrations show the little boy’s perspective and the combination is very powerful indeed. Rebecca has captured the childhood experiences of making friends, feeling shy and insecure, as well as growing in confidence and befriending others.
