Lovely children's story about Friendship
This is a wonderfully written children's story about making new friends. April had to move and her only friend is her stuffed bear, Wishy bear. Children will enjoy the story and learn about making friends and that friends come in many forms. ( )

April and her family are moving to a ew city. This makes her sad, because it means she'll have to go to a new school and make new friends. She makes a wish while holding her Wishy Bear. Will her wish come true? Great story about freindship and taking chances. I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own. ( )

This is an endearing story about a girl worrying about having to adjust to a new beginning as her family moves to a new place.

New school to go, new friends to make,
A smile she’ll have to fake.

April shares her wishes and fears with her stuffed animal, Wishy Bear.

“I wish for a forever friend
On I can hang out on end.

Accidentally, she drops Wishy bear, and must now look for him all over the neighborhood, and in the process she gets to know every new place around it, making it her new home in the fullest sense of the word. Granny Luna’s Bakery, Uncle Mike’s grocery store… A Labrador dog start following her around, tagging at her shoelaces to follow him. And when she does, he shows the way to find her Wishy bear. And so, in the end, her wish does come through, with a new friendship with the dog and with the neighborhood people.

The illustrations are simply a pleasure to look at. The are done is pastel colors, depicting green meadows around town, and a lego-like cluster of houses. Simply a joy to take in.

Five stars. ( )
