Caspian Finds a Friend: (Picture Book about Friendship for Kids, Bear Book for Children) (Hardcover)
I love stories about friendship. And animals! The artwork in this really intrigued me - I love how fuzzy his sweater is and the texture of the ocean and fish. It's a story that left me feeling warmhearted and smiley.
"What you seek is seeking you." - Rumi
