Says author B. A. O?Reilly, "We were born to be free. Open the pages of this book and smile." You?ve Got a Friend in Me presents a collection of delightful children?s poems about animals trying to survive in the wild, striving to make friends, and searching for their happy place. Each poem comes with a good message for children to embrace as they grow up in a world lacking in love and compassion. It?s always important to make friends!
