Friends shape who we are. They make us laugh. They fill us with fun. They stand by us during life's up and downs. And even when we disagree with our friends, if they're tried-and-true, they don't stay bent out of shape for long. That's the beauty of a good buddy. This joyous book rejoices in the simple beauties of friendship, and reminds readers of all ages that it's good to have a group of pals.

Hey y‘all. Random question for you, especially if you are a Litsy long-timer like me. Have you noticed that we have lost some of our regular folks on here? I‘m missing a few people that used to post daily. It makes me sad and wonder what happened to our friends.

CouronneDhiver YES! I miss our old crew around here... 6mo
DeleteAcct I have noticed this too. 6mo
mcipher Yeah we‘ve definitely lost some people. And there are so many newbies (which is awesome, don‘t get me wrong!!) that it can be hard to find the old regulars in your feed anymore. 6mo
JoScho I have noticed and it makes me sad. 6mo
Slajaunie I noticed this as well. I‘ve been a little absent lately as well, though. Sometimes life just gets so busy. ☹️ 6mo

I‘m sorry I‘ve been MIA for a few days. Between the new puppy, a family emergency, and getting severe bronchitis, I‘ve barely had time (or inclination) for social media much at all. But shout out to the lovely @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks for sending me some unexpected #LitsyLove a couple of days ago! Misty, you‘re the sweetest! 😘🥰💖💞💕

cobwebmoth Hope things improve for you soon! 9mo

Kaye Thank you for the notification, Jee , as I was unable to see this message. There‘s a differing opinion on what the JB group was for. Apparently I‘m being blocked because I choose to keep my private life PRIVATE.. I‘ll step down and that way, they can run it as they see fit. It doesn‘t make sense to have 2 separate groups, both doing the same thing. (edited) 11mo
Kaye @TheBookHippie Please remove my information from the mailing list. I‘ll be stepping out of the group. You and Misty can now have the group to do as you want. No hard feelings on this end. 11mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @kaye gonna miss you, Julie! Pls take care and we'll be here when you're ready to be back 🤗❤️ 11mo

Today my department got to volunteer at our nearby elementary school to read & have breakfast with kids whose parents were unable to attend their event. I got to hang out with 3 precocious and fun 1st grade boys. They were all given a copy of Friendshape, which is a great read aloud book with colors, shapes, friends, and puns. One of the boys had Bad Dog in his bag, so we read that too. It was a great way to start the day.

I read this for #storytime today in honor of Ms Krouse Rosenthal. We sang songs, rhymes and played with shapes. We did "Form the Orange" and had fun.

A great book for storytime. Not only can you practicve shapes and colors, you get to learn how to be friends.
