Sometimes It's Nice to Be Alone by Hest, Amy

Sometimes It's Nice to Be Alone

Sale price$18.99
A celebration of the joy and comfort to be found in alone time and the joy and comfort that a friend can bring.

Sometimes it's nice to be alone.
Just you, eating a cookie, alone.
But what if a friend drops in?

In Amy Hest and Philip C. Stead's accomplished hands, anyone can become a potential friend--and that includes horses, whales, crocodiles, and even dinosaurs. The book's effortless lilt and joyous illustrations are reminiscent of the very best work of Margaret Wise Brown and Charlotte Zolotow. It's a complete treat for any introverted kid with a big imagination.
