Since this is Safety Week here in Blogville, I selected a book that addresses an issue facing many of us - not being yourself because you want to be friends with creatures you shouldn't. I shared You Will Be My Friend with Aly and Dixie. The three of us keep trying to be friends with lizards and bunnies, but they just don't want to be friends with us.
Peter Brown wrote and illustrated this book. We really like the pictures that are so colorful and engaging.
Lucy (the bear) tells her mom she is going to make a new friend. There are so many critters in the forest, she is bound to find a friend. She climbed up a tree to meet a giraffe. The giraffe glared at Lucy because she was sitting in his BREAKFAST! They did not become friends.
Lucy tried so hard to make friends and tried acting just like the critters. She felt so silly because she just didn't fit in with them. I can't fly like the birds I want to be friends with, so I totally understand Lucy's predicament.
Be aware Blogville friends - if bees invite you over, don't eat their house. They will be mad.
Lucy finally made a friend when she stopped trying to be like others and just was herself.
