Best Friends by Steven Kellogg
Kathy and Louise are best friends, but what will happen when Louise goes away for the summer? Is Louise missing Kathy at all? Should she just find new friends and forget about Louise? Steven Kellogg's beautiful art depicts Kathy's wild imagination, as she wonders about the world around her. Kellogg's story of Kathy is one of the most honest and sincere depictions of how important friendship feels to a kid in a picture book. This is the perfect book for a child struggling with moving, is missing someone, or is dealing with change.

To Kathy the greatest thing in the world is a best friend. And Louise Jenkins is hers. They do everything together, from sharing their chocolate milk at lunch to riding Golden Silverwind, their make-believe horse who lives in the imaginary stable between their houses.
