This sweet little picture book is great for families to snuggle together and read, and a lovely reminder for early readers that caring adults set limits to keep them safe. Little Nutbrown Hare's confidence in both heading out on his own and in approaching a new friend to play can inspire young adventurers to do simple things like dig and play in nature, and to reach out to people they don't know. The illustrations in Will You Be My Friend? are delightful: bright, soft watercolors that bring a sense of happiness to the pages.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
