Great children's book Mar 15, 2006
This is a thoughtful and psychologically informed children's book that I highly recommend.
A cute book! Sep 8, 2005
Forever Friends is the simple story of a young boy, Petey and his dog, Skip. Petey tells the reader about his dog and how he cares for and what he teaches Skip. It's so cute that Petey does wonderful things for Skip and some of them just happen to be the things that Petey enjoys doing also.
The illustrations are well drawn but are overly busy. I began to feel a little schizoid looking at them
Armchair Interviews says: Children can learn a lesson reading this book. Petey takes responsibility for Skip and that's an important lesson. It's a cute book and children will enjoy the story.
Delightful! Sep 19, 2002
Forever Friends is a delightful look at the close relationship between a pet dog, Petey and his boy companion, Skip. The text is warm and concise and reads aloud very well. The playful illustrations match the writing precisely in both spirit and content; an essential criteria for a great book in my children's estimation.
My nine year old opened the book initially thinking it was for "babies" but found herself highly amused that the story is told from an animal's perspective. She re-reads it often. We love Forever Friends!
Not Just For Kids Sep 17, 2002
Yes, children 2-8 will love this quiet book about friendship between a boy and his dog. Rolls are blurred and we're never sure who is taking care of whom--not that it matters. This book makes a great gift with which to celebrate an adult friendship. Especially one that has surmounted role reversals and faded boundaries.
For boys and girls just learning how to read May 17, 2002
Simply and engaging written by Barbara S. Cohen, Forever Friends is a warm, highly enjoyable children's picturebook about a young boy and his dog - forever friends, as seen from the pooch's point of view! Easygoing, simple caricature color artwork by Dorothy Louise Hall illustrates this delightful picturebook book for young readers ages 2 to 8 -- and most especially for boys and girls just learning how to read.
