I received this book for the purpose of a fair and honest review.
Overview: Annie has a best friend from Sweden named Lillemor. They have so much in common. Life can’t get any better, until the new girl moves to town. Lilianne and Lillemor have a lot in common too. Is Annie losing her best friend.
Story Telling: Aw. This is cute. The language is both simple and thought-provoking. Plus the illustrations are cute.
Likes: When it comes to foreign words, Ms. Dunklee included the translations right on the same page with one exception.
Favorite Character: Now how can I choose between those three little girls?
Favorite Quote: When the girls are talking about their other languages. “Okay, so Annie made hers up, but she is pretty sure it still counts.”
Favorite Scene: The whole book was kind of cute. I liked it all.
Conclusion: This is a good story, one the whole family can enjoy during story time. So show your child that making a new friend doesn’t have to end an old friendship.
