The vibrant illustrations and charming story of Taro Gomi's My Friends are now available in an adorable board book format. My Friends is a spirited homage to friendship, as a little girl recounts all the things she has learned from an enchanging menagerie of animal friends. "I learned to run from my firend the horse. I learned to sing from my friends the birds. I learned to ready from my friends the books. And I learned to love from a friend like you." Using simple words and bright illustrations, author-illustrator Taro Gomi shows children that sometimes knowledge can come from all kinds of friends.
