In this book, best friends Mary and Clare always give each other big hugs at preschool, sit together at story time, and hold hands at recess. On Mary's birthday, though, Mary gets all the attention from the class, which makes Clare jealous. The two fight, but after cooling down, resolve their conflict and become even better friends in the process. ( )
