  1. As always, thank you for your recommendations and great taste in books. There’s nothing like a friend that loves to read!

    • I can’t imagine not loving reading. There are so many wonderful books being published that I’m sure that there’s a book out there for even the most reluctant reader 🙂

  2. Nice list Catherine. Sick Day for Mr. McGee is a classic of course, but we loved the others as well. During summer we pored over the Elephant and Piggie series and I can’t help but recommend these addition to the list. They are absolutely wonderful and have a strong theme of friendship to them. Thanks for sharing on Kid Lit Blog Hop!

  3. What a fun list! I didn’t even know it was international friendship day, so thanks for the heads-up! 🙂 Thanks for sharing this review. I found you at the Kid Lit Blog Hop. I also host a weekly link-up on Thursdays for all things book related at my site, I’d love for you to join us anytime!
    Have a magnificent week!

  4. Wow, I think not a lot of people value international friendship day. Everyday should be friendship day. These books might help readers understand its true meaning. I thank my friends for being there every step of the way. Thank you for the great list!
