Bucketloads of Friends By Mia Cassany and Miquel Bustos #GIVEAWAY

Lucas's search for a best friend turns into an amazing journey, illustrated with some of the busiest, most delightful drawings imaginable.

Bucketloads of Friends: Lucas is looking everywhere for a best friend: the park, the circus, by the lake, and at school. He meets a lot of people along the way. But what about a best friend? This entertaining and colorful book is full of details for kids to search and find. Every spread features line drawings that are humming with activity. From an animal hospital populated with every kind of pet to an office filled with workers too busy working to give Lucas the time of day; from a restaurant that appears to serve only sandwiches and salad to a botanic garden where the visitors are just as strange as the plants. As Lucas travels around the city, he meets a lot of people, but will he find a best friend? Young readers will turn again and again to these drawings, discovering new details each time, and sparking their own ideas about how people interact in everyday situations. Many look and find questions will increase the fun and help to spot even more details.

The 411:

I receive many books that I review at home and bring into my classroom for my kids to enjoy. This one my 13 year old told me she wanted me to keep home for her to read when she wants to.

We enjoyed the illustrations as much as the story about Luca looking for a friend.

As a teacher of preschool age, I love the very busy pages with fun, colorful, and very detailed illustrations. My kids are going to love talking about all the characters on the pages. They love Find and Seek books. You can ask many open ended questions to keep kids interested, searching and excited about each page. Your questions, will be different every time because there is so much to see here.
