Review quote

Upbeat without glossing over the effort needed to see friendships through "rain and shine," it's a promising classroom readaloud. Publishers Weekly Children, flowers, birds, trees and seasons are skillfully illustrated using multicolored patterns and shapes that will have considerable visual appeal for preschoolers.... this book will encourage young friendships to bloom.
