With two girls in school and a third not far behind, I’m always looking for stories that speak to the importance of being a kind, true friend. I don’t think my girls have ever actually heard of the old ‘sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me’ saying, but it’s kind of inaccurate anyway.
I love how this book takes that old saying and spins it into a positive story about two friends; Stick and Stone. The pages are filled with clever puns that made us giggle and an ending that is as heartwarming as the main characters. We won’t spoil the it for you; you’ll have to pick up a copy and find out how these two friends stick together through thick and thin.
