I love that it can apply to friendship between children, or to that special soul-mate love between adults. It's just so simple yet so true in its gentle, everyday reasons for liking someone--while showing that, really, the empathy found in those situations is the heart of it all. Jan 01, Kathy Ellen Davis rated it it was amazing Shelves: picture-books.
Such a sweet book. Perfect for friends, children, anyone. It puts friendship in concrete terms that anyone will understand. The last time I read it? Aloud to a friend I had just made over the summer, at the airport, before he left to go home. He came to sublet my room. From the second he arrived, we were like two peas in a pod. Only, this little pea had to leave. We did get to spend some time together. And we both talked about how crazy it was to just meet and then feel so close.
We were both sad that we Such a sweet book. We were both sad that we wouldn't be able to see each other, since he lives across the Atlantic. So when I got to this part: "If you go away then I go away too Or I stay home You send me a postcard You don't just say Well see you around sometime bye. I like you a lot because of that and If I go away I send you a postcard too.

I like you because because because I forget why I like you, but I do. So many reasons. Jul 31, Novlette Gooden-Castillo rated it it was amazing. Absolutely splendid little book about the appreciation of friendship, whether young or old. Bound to bring a smile to your face! Jul 29, Reco rated it it was amazing. One of the best books that I've read in years - seriously. One of the best things about children's books is that they don't beat around the bush. After the first page, I knew this was a book that I would have to buy Simple but touching.
