K-Gr 3–Best friends Eunice and Kate live next to each other in the city. Each girl lives with her single mom, and they play and walk to school together. The only difference is that Eunice loves to dance ballet and Kate wants to be an astronaut. One day at school, their friendship is tested when they are instructed to draw each other, and neither girl likes the result. Will they learn to accept each other’s wishes for the future? Napoli’s quirky, fun illustrations perfectly match the text. This book is a great read that highlights the importance of accepting others.
VERDICT A recommended purchase with a clearly conveyed lesson.
