So Close by Natalia Colombo

This children's picture book is striking. The illustrations are simple by design and they go well with the story line. Tundra Books has done an excellent job of printing and binding once again.

There is a very simple message in this book that could change your child's life.

Mr. Duck and Mr. Rabbit go to work everyday - traveling the same route. They don't really even see each other and if they do, they don't say anything.

The point of the story is that if they had just said "hello", they could have done things together instead of being all alone... Things are more fun with a friend.

This book is for ages 4-7. Some younger ones may be understand the story, too. Help your child understand that it's OK to be friendly - if done in the right way.
