The Blessings of Friendship - Treasury by Mary Engelbreit

It is hard to truly describe this lovely book and the bits of beautiful treasures inside. The rhymes, thoughts, and lovely tributes to having a friend and being a friend are just wonderful.

Not only is it a lovely book textually, but the art work is gorgeous. The youngsters pictured are so expressive and the colors and activities just grab your attention. I believe you'll fall in love with it, too.
"As I love nature, as I love singing birds, and gleaming stubble, and flowing rivers, and morning and evening, and summer and winter, I love thee, my friend."--Henry David Thoreau
"There are people who take the heart out of you, and there are people who put it back."--Elizabeth David
"A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be." --Douglas Pagels
I have a hard time deciding who will love this best - children or adults. Well, both will. It is absolutely lovely.
