Freckleface Strawberry is back, and she’s struggling to figure out what it means for someone to be a best friend.
In Freckleface Strawberry: Best Friends Forever, Freckleface spends a lot of time with her best friend, “Windy Pants.” They enjoy each other’s company and all that they have in common. They both have nicknames and families, and they both like reading, eating food from street vendors, and going to the museums.
But, one day the other children start to point out the best friends are not the same (namely because one is a girl and one is a boy), and these constant reminders start to impact their friendship. As the differences between boys and girls start to surface, the two best friends start to be pulled apart, but they soon recognize that sometimes a true friendship is based on both what two people have in common as well as what they do not.
Freckleface Strawberry: Best Friends Forever is a wonderful successor to the other books in this series. The story is simple enough to teach a lesson but complex enough to keep the attention of readers as they advance.
The illustrations are similar to those that have come before and will continue to bring smiles to readers who have gotten to know and love Freckleface Strawberry and have been anxiously awaiting her next adventure.
