Item description for I'll Always Be Your Friend by Sam Mcbratney...
No one likes to stop playing when they're having fun. So when Mother fox says its time to go home, her little fox tells her, "I'm not your friend anymore," and scampers off. But as daylight fades and dark shadows loom, little fox starts to have second thoughts.
With his usual keen eye for the range of emotions of young children, Sam McBralney perfectly captures the trust between a child testing out his independence and his mother, who reassures him "I'll always be your friend."

Love, love, LOVE this book! May 9, 2005
This is such a cute little story of *exactly* how children can act (or react) when something doesn't go their way...and how they always need their parents (no matter how angry or upset they might get at times). It's a simple, very well written book which has become part of the bedtime routine with our five year old son.
Great tool for friendship lesson Jun 5, 2004
My 5 year old daughter is in pre-k. For months the teachers and parents have dealt with a common problem. Children in the class saying "I don't want to be your friend anymore". I know my daughter said it and had it said to her. While book shopping, my daughter picked up this book. I never heard of it, never bothered to look through it. What luck when we got home and I read it at bedtime. We took it to school the next day and the teachers read it to the class. It won't solve the small problem 100%, but it opens the children's minds that that simple phrase could one day have them feel very lonely in this big world.
Great for moms and their kids Jun 8, 2001
This book is a great bedtime (or anytime) book for moms to read to their kids. I think all children can relate to not wanting to stop playing to go to bed. The mother fox is patient and loving in her insistence that they settle down for the night. The illustrations are so cute, my 3 year old daughter keeps petting the baby fox. I recommend this book to anyone with children, as it reinforces the idea of undying and unconditional love. A+
