I Don’t Care

We rated this book:


Two little girls are talking about what they don’t care about: if the other likes what shoes she is wearing or if the other thinks her singing is funny or if the other thinks her drawing of a frog looks more like a bunny or if the other thinks her lunch smells funny. Neither of them cares about such things as that. But what each does care about is if the other always plays fair and is willing to share and if the other will hold hands when they are spinning. And they each care if the other is sad, worried, or upset. They really both care about what good friends care about.

Julie Fogliano has written a perfectly delightful homage to what friendship is really about. It will help youngsters understand that friendship takes cooperation and work, but it is well worth the effort. Her lyrical writing is always a treat to read, especially aloud to little listeners. The enchanting illustrations by Molly Idle and Juana Martinez-Neal complete the story perfectly and will help to keep youngsters engaged with the book. Don’t miss this one.
