    I was given Friends Surprise Friends as a gift. I am a first-grade teacher assistant and mother of two. I have read the book many times at home and at work. It’s a favorite with the kids.

    I bought several at Christmas to give to a Children’s hospital. I will be reordering more for another one of my charities soon. The books were a hit.

  5. CA

    Granddaughter loves the “baby seagulls.” I appreciate reading to her about kindness and having good friends.

  6. GS

    My 7-year-old daughter loved the pony wearing a patch. She has had several eye surgeries and felt she could relate to Captain Danny. Great read, my children love to read it at bedtime.
