Who says friends have to be alike? When Mokey skips out an open door at the zoo, he wanders off to find some friends to play with. He doesn’t discover any monkeys, but he does find some new friends who are just as fun to play with, no matter how different they are.
Mokey’s New Friends by Connie Arnold is a wonderful story that celebrates diversity. Though sometimes we are drawn to people who are similar to us, we also find friendship with those who have different likes and abilities than we do. With this charming book, Arnold encourages kids to accept the differences and enjoy the time spent with friends.
Artist Marina Movshina lends her impressive talents to beautifully illustrate this story. From the minute the reader meets Mokey, they will be captivated by the pictures Movshina has painted to bring this story to life.
Kids will enjoy this delightful story over and over again.
