Book Description

Vibrantes ilustraciones y con un texto simple y rítmico se mezclan perfectamente en este enérgico homenaje a la amistad, como una niña relata todas las cosas que ella ha aprendido de un encantador grupo de animales amigos: "He aprendido a ejecutar desde mi amigo el caballo. Aprendí a cantar de mis amigos las aves. Aprendí a leer de mis amigos los libros. Y aprendí a amar a un amigo como tú."

El audaz diseño gráfico e ilustraciones de colores brillantes que se han convertido en la marca del trabajo de Taro Gomi apelará a niños y adultos. Además, esta es una versión de formato fijo del libro, que parece casi idéntico a la versión impresa.

Product Description


..."an elemental story that will reach toddlers and preschoolers alike."

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab book 26 May 2011
Format:Board book
Really like this book. It's a simple book with lovely illustrations all about a little girl and who she learns from. My 2 year old really loves it and equates the objects/animals in the book to things and people she learns from. No story here, but it's still engaging and interactive for a 2 year old. Will be looking out for more Taro Gomi books. I am always looking out for unusual and interesting things, including books for under 5's as I write about this stuff (at ebabee likes) and this certainly fits the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming 9 Jun. 2012
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
A charming little book. My daughter is 16 months old and she really likes it. It's unusual in that it is very simple and intended for a young audience (1 - 3 year olds by my estimate), but still has a lot of pages. So many books for this age group have, like 4 or 5 pages and take about 10 seconds to read. This one is longer, which is very nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another family favourite 19 May 2013
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
Lovely pictures paired with charming repeated structure. Read it to our first-born from birth, and have film footage of her reading it to her newborn baby sister because she knew it by heart. Highly recommended as one of baby's first books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful read! 16 May 2001
By "coritex" - Published on
This book is the first and last choice of my 15-month-old daughter every night before she goes to bed. She delights in the pictures and simple text, and asks for it to be read over and over again. The age description says 4 to 8 years, but even the youngest readers can enjoy the colorful pictures and the story's adorable heroine.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I learned to walk from my friend the cat." 28 April 2006
By Luan Gaines - Published on
An elegant simplicity of design and the use of primary colors make this book an attractive primer for bilingual study, as a little girl identifies with the world around her, beginning with animals: "I learned to jump from my friend the dog/ De mi amigo el perro aprendi a bincar." She learns to climb from a monkey, to explore from an ant, to watch the night sky from an owl, to sing from the birds. Then she learns to read from books, to study from her teachers and to play from her school friends. Best of all, she "[learned] to love from a friend like you/ Y aprendi como amor de un amigo como tu", adding an emotional element to the learning process. The drawings are simply constructed, kept to an appropriate language level, learning-friendly in concept and execution, the perfect introduction to bilingual language skills. Luan Gaines/ 2006.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well loved with beautiful illustrations. 5 July 2012
By Katie Lin - Published on
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
My son absolutely loves this book. When own several books by Taro Gomi and they definitely don't disappoint. The illustrations are cute and the words are short and sweet. My son loves to point out and name the animals and objects in the book. Every time we read the book, he points out new objects. Its a great way to teach him the names of objects and animals. I have since bought several copies of this book for friends and family and they have always been well received and loved. The most recent gift was raved about at the gift opening. Another parent that we had given the book to raved about how much they and their daughter love the book. I would highly recommend My Friend as well as any other title by Taro Gomi!

5.0 out of 5 stars "My Friends" is a sweet treat... 18 Jan. 2009
By Georgia O'Keefe - Published on
This is a lovely book with the most wonderful illustrations. Since it was so highly recommended by our niece's 2-year-old daughter, Elle, I bought it for my 1-year-old grandson, Max. He was charmed. It does come as a board book, which is probably a smarter choice for a child this young.

"My Friends" is one of my favorite books. It is beautifully illustrated and a beautifully told story. My Friends teaches respect - respect and love for the world around us. I read My Friends to my son and look forward to sharing this book with him for years to come.
