Friends Come in All Shapes, Sizes, Colors, and Ages

It is a lucky kid who finds one really good friend to chum around with. To outsiders, the good friend may seems like an unlikely choice. It might be because the friend is of a another sex,race,or religion. It might be because the friends are not the same age, or one may have a handicapping condition. In this story, a lonley young girl spending a summer with her grandparents learns a whole lot about what makes a good friend a good friend. One of the first things she learns is not to judge a neighbor, "old" Sally Arnold, just on looks. And guess what, it turns out the musical, artistic, and nature loving Sally Arnold makes a very good friend. Lo and behold, the girl's lonley feeling is soon gone. Before you know it, the mountains of West Virginia end up a beautiful place to spend the summer. The story and the soft illustrations appeal to my 5th grade nephew. He likes the story as it is about a loving relationship, ecology, music, and more. And since he likes to draw, he knows good illustrations when he sees them.

A lesson in respect

I loved reading this story about a young girl, Jenny, who has to decide if the strange little old lady in town is really a witch. What Jenny and the little old lady, Sally Arnold, find is that friendship comes in all sizes, ages, and eccentricies. We often teach our children not to judge others by how they look. Yet Ryan took that simple saying and turned it into an intergenerational story about what friendship really is about---respect.
