Harry and Walter by Kathy Stinson
Best Friends Forever.
Harry may be four and three-quarters and Walter may be ninety-two and a half, but that doesn’t stop them from being best friends. Harry loves to go next door to play games with Walter and draw pictures together. And when the snow falls, Walter clears a path to Harry’s house so that they can visit every day.
But one day, a For Sale sign appears on Harry’s lawn. Harry is devastated that he and Walter will no longer be neighbors. Harry’s new house is bigger and better than his old one, but without Walter to share things with, nothing seems to be much fun…until one day, Harry hears a familiar voice. Walter, too, has moved–to a nearby seniors’ residence. Now, Harry and Walter can still be best friends.
FTC Disclosure: I received a free e-copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.
My thoughts: This is a sweet adorable story about friendship that shows that true friendship isn’t bound by age or distance. Stinson’s story is heart warming and Qin Leng’s illustrations are fun and add to the energy of the story.
This would be an excellent gift for a new grandparent.
I hope to add this to my school library.
