My Best Friend

Pat Hutchins, Author, Pat Hutchins, Illustrator Greenwillow Books $17.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-688-11485-5
The latest picture book from the creator of Silly Billy! and Tidy Titch offers a look at how the strengths and weaknesses of best friends tend to play off each other. Two ebullient African American girls demonstrate that someone who can run fast, climb high, untie her shoes and read books is certainly special. But being able to comfort a chum when she is frightened is equally important. Laudably, the girl who doesn't run fast or read never feels inadequate, nor does her best friend act superior. With their numerous homey touches, Hutchins's gouache paintings enliven the very slight text, making this a supportive slice of life. Ages 3-up. (Apr.)
