Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

For fans of The Day the Crayons Quit, Little Pea, or How Are You Peeling?

What's a little piece of bread to do when he's feeling lonely? Find a friend, of course

And that's exactly what Peanut Butter tries to do. But sometimes friends are hard to come by, especially when Hamburger has to walk his (hot) dogs, Cupcake is too busy building castles in her sprinkle box, and Egg laughs so hard he starts to crack up Does Peanut Butter have a soulmate? Young readers will know the answer long before Peanut Butter does and laugh along with each mismatched pairing.

In a story that pairs silliness with poignancy, and friendship with anthropomorphic food, Terry Border, the photography mastermind behind the Bent Objects project, makes a triumphant entrance into the children's book world. Complete with a rhyming refrain, this is sure to be a favorite family read-aloud--and laugh-aloud.

This is a great little book on friendship and the difficulties that come with making friends, Raymond said. It is very important for children to have friends. Children often say to me I want so and so be my friend but they don't want too. In the story, the peanut butter asks for several different foods to be his friends but they say no. It's just that he keeps asking until he finds the perfect friend for peanut butter.
   Wonderful story & great photos!
I bought this book because I was a Mystery Reader in my daughter's first grade. It has all the components for a winning story _ great storyline about friendship, repetition that the kids can pick up on, humor and even pictures! Definitely recommend. It's great to be back home, said Blair.
   Better title than book
I bought this for a five year old who really wants it but I thought the story was a little light, and I would not have bought it if I saw it in a bookstore. She is just taken with the title so I will give it to her with other books so she won't feel disappointed, Mr Hughes said. It's just that the new kid on the block is not really about peanut butter and cupcake. It's about peanut butter looking for new friends and finding one called Jelly. But the title is great.
   Adults may find repetative. Kids couldn't disagree more.
The book is stunning, the illustrations are by some of the masters of the macabre. As far as I can tell it's a combination of real-life photography and colorful illustrations. I also enjoyed the message this story sends to children that perseverance is the key to success in all things, especially when you're new to town. It shows that sometimes it's hard to make friends. You may be shot down many times along the way, and it may feel hopeless, but eventually you will succeed as long as you don't give up. Stick to your heart, be kind, don't be afraid to ask someone to play, and we'll go together like peanut butter and jelly! I personally found this book a bit repetitive and the character voices not all that unique. But my 6 year old son couldn't disagree more. He absolutely adores this book and would read it every night at bedtime for at least a decade if I could tolerate it in a row.
   An Instant Favorite
We absolutely love this book in our home because the pictures are not drawings, they are photos of actual items that have been posedstaged within a miniature set. The scenes throughout the book are admirable, funny, whimsical, and unique. My daughter said, "Papa, how did they get that piece of peanut butter toast to kick that soccer ball?" Creativity, I guess they wanted to see that happen so they just created it and made it happen.. The story is very enjoyable, cute and has a good message. The flow and rhythm makes it fun and easy to read and for children to listen, as one of the reviewers said, it is a read aloud hit.
   Such a great book for the classroom!
This book is great to add to your social-emotional learning library!!!!!!!!! There are some great activities on TpT that go along with this book. Highly recommend. I absolutely love this book!!!!!!!!!!
   Cute book
This book is a great way to start discussing friendship with my kindergarten students. Even if they don't play with you all the time, you can still be friends.
   The story is poorly written
The pictures are the only reason I can stomach this book. The terrible part is the story itself. It's extremely wordy, lonnggg, awkwardly written, and forced. I am shocked this has such high reviews.
   Amazing for Talking About Making New Friends
This is a perfect book for young children ages 3 to 5, learning about making new friends and knowing it's okay if someone doesn't want to play with us. The “illustrations” are photos of real objects. It's just so creative. At the end all the food pieces get along, it's just that good.
   Love it
Love it. This was my grandson's favorite book when he was four and five, and he is now six. He told me he didn't know what happened there. So, I ordered him a new one. He had the most beautiful smile on his face when he saw the photo. He sat down and read it to me. Both of us enjoyed it.
