I Need All the Friends I Can Get (Peanuts)
My heart is happy and content with a classic Charlie Brown story; I Need All the Friends I Can Get does not disappoint. The story predictably follows Charlie Brown on his quest to figure out what makes a good friend and why he doesn’t have one. His friends assist him with definitions of the word “friend” by tailoring the ways to themselves, which makes it more understandable and relatable for the reader. Can Charlie Brown find that one person who fits the criteria?
I believe that almost everyone has felt like a “Charlie Brown” and deserves to find the person(s) in their life who may seem invisible but have been a support and available to them below the radar. I enjoyed the added effect of colors on the pages throughout the story. I found it appropriate and witty that there is a “to and from” page to gift this book to a friend, or maybe one that you would like to be a new best friend. I love how reminiscent this story is of the original Charlie Brown, and the colors and patterns throughout the book are pleasing to the eye.
