FELICITY AND CORDELIA: A Tale of Two Bunnies by Lisa Jahn-Clough (FSG/Feb 2011) is a sweet tale of friends who are very different. Felicity likes adventures, while Cordelia prefers to stay home. When Felicity sets off on a hot-air balloon adventure, Cordelia stays home and bakes pies--and tries not to worry. This is a lovely story about staying friends in spite of--or perhaps because of--being different. Here's a link to the author's website with a cute book trailer.
This book is absolutely adorable! From the story to the illustrations. It was so enjoyable for me to read this with my daughter. It really illustrates how kids have different interests, but that their bond of friendship can still be strong. They don't have to do everything together, but it's nice to support each other and cheer each other on. These two bunnies are very different, but you can see how much they care about each other and want to spend time together.
This is a great book to open up conversations about being different. It's also a good way to talk about accepting their friends interests and not pushing what you want to do on others. It's important to be understanding and find ways to enjoy spending time together. It's really very cute!
