My Friends - Board Box Set
by Taro Gomi
Age Range: Under_5
Using very simple words and colourful illustrations, this book depicts a little girl learning from her animal friends. Her cat shows her how to walk, her dog how to jump, and a monkey how to climb trees. As ever, Japanese author and illustrator Taro Gomi’s artwork has a magnetic appeal that is sure to attract young children. His meticulous sense of design and use of brilliant primary colours has created a perfect blend of art and text.
My Friends forms part of a boxed set of three classic books from the 1980s published by Chronicle that also includes Bus Stops and Spring is Here.
