How to Get Friends!


Well look no further!

This year, Eric Carle wows us again with his brand-new, heartwarming story about two friends. When one moves away, the other braves rivers, mountains and meadows just to see his friend again. Inspired by Eric's enduring relationship with his wife, Bobbie, and based on real friendships lost and kept, Friends will resonate deeply. Read this book! Read it with your friend! Write your friend a letter and tell them to read it! It will remind you how important your closest friendships truly are.

Friends releases November 19, 2013, but here at the Carle are lucky enough to have Eric Carle's latest book EARLY!
