Friendship makes the world go around! We’ve created this list of the 20 Best Children’s Books about Friendship because books are a great way to introduce different concepts about friendship. It’s so important for your child’s social development that you talk with them about friendship. This might include what it means to be a friend, how to show a friend that you care, what forms friendships can take, and what to do when a friend stops being a good friend.
Children’s books that feature animals are some of the most hilarious, creative, heart-warming, wholesome, and exciting books around. According to a survey done by librarians at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, about 26% of all picture books feature animals as their main characters. And there’s no wonder why! Books about animals allow children to not only learn more about nature, but they also often carry important themes about friendship, perseverance, kindness, and much more. They have so much to offer in terms of child development and emerging literacy, and they are consistently favorites of children of all age groups.
