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.

Shout it once Shout it twice Friends forever Skog and mice Since its publication in 1973, The Island of the Skog has been a favorite of children everywhere--and of the author himself We're delighted to remind you of this beloved book on its thirtieth birthday. Jenny and her city-mouse friends take to the seas in search of a more peaceful place to live. But when they arrive at what first seems the island of their dreams, they have a giant problem to contend with: the island's only inhabitant, the Skog. Judging by his enormous footprints, he seems a more terrible threat than a hundred urban cats and dogs. How will the mice master their new domain? Funny, exciting and sweet, The Island of the Skog is a timeless tale of cooperation and compromise. It won the Michigan State Young Readers Award, and was included on Booklist's Books for Every Child and the CBC Books for Peace list.
