Lucille the bear is back in this adorable new picture book
from Peter Brown! She’s moved on from trying to get a pet… now she wants a
friend! But finding a new friend is harder than it looks. As the faux-pas add
up, and her attempts become more and more desperate, poor Lucille becomes
despondent. Doesn’t anybody want to be her friend?
Lucille’s lack of social skills will leave little ones
rolling on the floor, but may also serve to provide a surprising element of
solidarity. It IS hard to make friends, and Lucille’s battle will allow kids to
feel comforted by the fact that it’s not just hard for them. They may even be
better at it than Lucille, and even she's (eventually) able to find a
like-minded flamingo. Adorably illustrated in the same style as Children Make
Terrible Pets, this new picture books has the makings of a contemporary
classic. For ages 3+
Make friends with Peter at Oh My Gosh, Stories!
