Stick and Stone” by Beth Ferry and Tom Lichtenheld. (Book Review)

Stone is stuck in a sticky situation. (A stone in a pickle, if you will.) Luckily, Stick is there to snap to the rescue and un-stick Stone. But when Stick gets himself stuck, will Rock roll to Stick’s side?

This book explores concepts of bullying as well as unlikely, true friendship. It is good to see such diverse characters  sticking up for one another when it really counts, as well as searching every inch of the land to aid a friend in need! Big text of simple words and smart, silly rhymes makes this book perfect for an early reader, and enjoyable for the whole family. The beige and blue palette is appealing as an accompaniment to the story’s friendly characters and mood.

Moral of the story: Stick and Stone may break your (funny) bone but their names will always remind you of this great tale of friendship!

Dolly gets ready to read this great book with her friend!
