  1. Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny Even though she died nearly 60 years ago, her books still sell very well.Margaret loved animals Most of her books have animals as characters in the story She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem She thought this made children think harder when they are reading.She wrote all the time There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them.She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn t the same way an adult would tell a story She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper.Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France She had many friends who still miss her They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement Margaret saw herself as something else a writer of songs and nonsense.

  1. I love this book and so do my kids twin boys, age 3.5 The text is simple and fun to read, listing different likes boats, trains, whistles, etc In the end, it comes around to I like people, and it s very sweet My kids just about know it word for word Even better than the text is the illustrations by Garth Williams He is one of my favorite illustrators and his artwork for The Friendly book is beyond perfect There s all kinds of animals driving all kinds of trains, boats and cars His illustrations [...]


  2. This book gets 5 stars for me for one reason only the wonderful illustrations of Garth Williams My copy is a re publication of the original Unlike some of the re publications of vintage Little Golden Books, this edition is faithful to the original and does not omit parts of the text or any of the pictures I loved this story as a child and would get lost in the details of the illustrations Margaret Wise Brown s text is okay it s all about liking categories of things trains, cars, dogs, boats and [...]


  3. A strange cross between what I d normally expect from Margaret Wise Brown and Dr Seuss The text varied from page to page, sometimes all illustrated and sometimes leaving a small person asking What type of X is that Good for a beginning reader, if only I could encourage looking at the words rather than just guessing from the pictures


  4. The lulling repetition puts you into a nice sleepy state You like the way I says doggy dog You think the bunny waiting in the car to get the tire fixed feels sad You like to point out the mama and baby dog on the bench, and the submarine that is bumping the rowboat.


  5. Margaret Wise Brown, The Friendly Book Golden Press, 1954 The farther I get outside the Goodnight Moon circle of Margaret Wise Brown books, the I understand that saying about lightning never striking twice The Friendly Book is the weakest book the Brown corpus we ve encountered so far It seems to be an attempt at poetry To Brown s credit, the structure of most of the pieces of the book is the same, though that structure is very flawed the first half of each poem each of which is title I Like __ [...]


  6. I have loved this book for over 50 years, and could recite most of it by heart And, it s so fun to stop at each page and watch all of the activity going on in each illustration Love Garth Williams Over the years, I must have lost my copy.or maybe it fell apart from so much love.but purchased a new copy recently When I read it, it s like visiting old friends I love this book so much, that I wrote sort of a silly homage to Margaret Wise Brown in the style of The Friendly Book For about 50 years I [...]


  7. People, boats, dogs, fish, snow, stars, even trains among other things that a child likes Good starter book for the young reader as it shows how one thing can still be many different things, and yet be the same thing.



  8. This book was all about liking a lot of things It would be good to introduce diversity to small students.
