The Blessings of Friendship {a Review}

by Mary Engelbreit

I have long loved Mary Engelbreit. IMG_2982[1]Growing up I always had a day by day calendar with her whimsical illustrations. I still have 2 of those pages on our fridge, one showing a mother lifting high a toddler, with the quote “Within our dreams and our aspirations we find our opportunities”, and the other a father with 3 children {all aptly gendered and hair colored to our own crew} with “Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad”. They’ve been there on my fridge for the better part of 8 years.

When I had the opportunity to review The Blessings of Friendship through BookLookBloggers, I snatched it up! No way would I pass up the opportunity to have some of Engelbreit’s beautiful work in our home. The Blessings of  Friendship is a short collection of illustrations, poems, and verses, all to do with Friendship.

Ave and I read it the other night at bed time, as we both enjoyed each detail of the book. Beautiful words, beautiful pictures, beautiful message of the value of friendship.

This book is great for a little one or to share with a friend. It’s one that I know we will all enjoying looking for years to come.



I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers  book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
