A story of first friendship.

she is my best friend i think
i never had a best friend so i’m not sure
but i think she is a really good best friend
because when we were drawing
she drew me
and i drew her.

What is a best friend, if not someone who laughs with you the whole entire day, especially when you pretend to be a pickle?

(synopsis from Goodreads)

This book is adorable. Combining beautiful artwork with spare, poetic text that evokes the simplicity of childhood friendships, My Best Friend is a lovely look at two little girls who decide they are best friends... after only knowing each other for a few minutes.

There's little more to be said about a book like this; it really needs to be experienced by the reader.
