Description


Good friends come in all shapes and sizes!

Unlikely Friendships, the runaway New York Times bestseller with a compelling message of hope and friendship and differences overcome, is rewritten just for younger readers. This hardcover chapter book for children ages seven and up collects five heartwarming true stories of animal friendship: Koko the gorilla and her favorite kittens, a dog who swims with dolphins, a zebra who cares for a young gazelle, a baby warthog who makes friends with a lonely rhinoceros, and a leopard who cuddles with a cow at bedtime.

Chapter books give young readers a strong sense of accomplishment, and these heartwarming animal stories, with their incredible photographs and inexplicable mysteries of attraction, their focus on friendship, love, and the ways that creatures of all different species can find common bonds of affection, will keep kids turning the pages to find out about the unusual ways animals help each other and discover the love of new friends.

Each is a perfect gift for young animal lovers, and a lovely subject to help kids get reading.
