Need a go-to gift book? Mary Engelbreit’s new book “The Blessings of Friendship Treasury” is a fun find for kids and adults alike. It’s a beautifully illustrated collection of poems, sayings and Bible verses about friendship. As you would expect with any Engelbreit product, the illustrations are too precious for word.
My five-year-old daughter loves this book, and it’s an enjoyable bedtime read aloud. She also likes to look at the pictures on her own. The high quality detail really holds her attention.
One thing I noticed about the pictures is Engelbreit’s efforts to include diversity. On the whole, I think the ratio of white kids is still a bit too high, but kudos to Engelbreit for trying. She even portrays a little girl in a wheelchair.
All in all, this is a happy book to have in our collection. Thank you to BookLook for providing a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion and review.
