Description

Playtime means very different things to these two spirited friends

Pip is full of ideas for what to play: Dress up! Magicians! Dolls!
 
Only, Nico doesn’t want to play any of them, and Pip gets mad. REALLY mad.
 
But don’t worry—Nico finds the perfect way for them to play together.
 
Michelle Lee’s irresistible characters show that finding a way to play together will always hit the right note.

Praise For Play with Me!

"Young children will related to Pop's exuberance and exasperation while also appreciating that sometimes you just want to do your own thing. . . . A nice, gentle reminder that it takes two to make a friendship work."—Kirkus

"Pip the pig and Nico the bear agree to play together—an ordinary enough idea that proves to be anything but. . . . That these pals are evenly matched in passion and determination makes their reconciliation all the more satisfying."—Publishers Weekly

“A playful story about two friends at a crossroads . . . The watercolor illustrations, outlined in ink, are lively and appealing."Booklist

“A fun book that teaches youngsters about compromising and the importance of being a good friend. The adorable illustrations are simple and allow readers to focus on the two playmates. The characters are delightful and animated.”—School Library Journal

"There’s more than a bit of Elephant and Piggie here, and repetition and short sentences puts this well within the reach of beginning readers, but the book also will easily serve as fodder for a creative, bouncy storytime."—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
