Three Best Friends Fabulous Day by Mary Ting
I was given the opportunity to review Three Best Friends Fabulous Day. The author, Mary Ting, is an elementary school teacher and a mother who was inspired by her own daughter's friendships to write this chapter book for children.
The stories in this book are based on the real life events of three best friends as they are learning about issues such as friendship, health and the interests of young girls. Three Bests Friends is written from a second grader's point of view and has short, easy to read chapters that I believe a child would find entertaining.
Each chapter is a different scene during the day that gives an inside look into how the average second grade girl may interact with her friends. Kaitlin, Charisse and Kaylie are three best friends who are learning from one another constantly and make you want to observe the conversations of young children more.
While the grammar isn't perfect in this book, I don't believe that takes away from the value of the stories at all. I found the book to be adorable and plan on giving it to my niece, who just happens to be a second grader. I'm sure she'll enjoy it and I love the subtle learning lessons she can get from reading it.
Three Best Friends Fabulous Day gets 3.5 stars.
