If you’re looking for a terrific picture book about friendship, Jane & Mizmow (2011, Harper) by Matthew Armstrong is the perfect choice. The text is short and sweet, allowing the wonderful, bright illustrations to do most of the “talking”. (My favorite illustration is of bath time for Mizmow.) The story is about best friends, Jane and Mizmow, who despite their little (and perhaps not-so-little, you be the judge) differences, and even despite an argument, remain the best of friends. These two know that life is more fun when you have a friend to share it with. Jane & Mizmow is a sweet book with two charming main characters who will delight children ages 3 to 5 and beyond.
