The Blessings of Friendship

The book I just received in the mail brought me back to childhood. When I opened the book, I felt like the author wrote the book just for me. The illustrations were really nice. I was totally surprised by how much work the illustrator put in to make this book a wonder. 

The Blessings of Friendship, by Mary Engelbreit is a really good poetry treasury full of Bible verses and quotes that celebrate the joy of friendship. I look forward to integrating this poetry trove into my classroom because  children will learn from timeless sayings and poems what it means to be a friend - helping, encouraging, listening, sharing with, and loving one another. 

Colorful and whimsical illustrations bring these words to life, as children learn the value of friendship. Verses from the Bible give us instruction on putting others above ourselves, loving each other, and being kind to one another. This book will make you smile with each turn of the page, remembering old friends and new friends alike.
