Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—This stick and stone would never break a bone, as they're too busy caring about each other. Round stone labels himself a "zero" and tall, skinny Stick is only a "one," as they are solitary figures until they come together to form "a perfect 10." Stick sticks up for Stone when bully Pinecone makes fun of the rock, and the two become close companions. Told in rhyming couplets, this warm and tender story of two BFFs is made even more enjoyable by the charming, textured tan and blue illustrations, highlighted with touches of green and red. The pictures range in size from double spreads to small vignettes and deftly convey the two companions' harmonious relationship. Endpapers reveal Stick's and Stone's origins, and the text, suitable for beginning readers, sweetly expresses what it is to be and to have a good friend.—Maryann H. Owen, Children's Literature Specialist, Mt. Pleasant, WI --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

"These two characters are a delight to know...and the irresistible cadence of the text should make this a repeat favorite."
—Booklist

* ”This warm and tender story of two BFFs is made even more enjoyable by the charming, textured tan and blue illustrations . . . the text, suitable for beginning readers, sweetly expresses what it is to be and to have a good friend.”
School Library Journal, starred review

"Ferry adds zip to the best-friends-forever theme with plenty of sly puns...and Lichtenheld conveys significant expressiveness through the characters’ dot eyes and small smiles...The use of instantly recognizable objects as characters gives the story universal appeal, and Ferry makes its moral unmissable."
—Publishers Weekly

"A light, enjoyable approach to a recognizable narrative about making—and helping—friends."
—Kirkus

"Preschoolers looking for a model of good friendship need look no further. Kindness rules the day, and humor, rather than obvious lesson-teaching, moves the story along."
—Horn Book Magazine
--This text refers to the board_book edition.

Story about friendship. Very little text per page so it is great for little ones who are more into turning pages :) It used to be everyday read. Strongly recommend.
