Eunice and Kate

We rated this book:


Eunice and Kate is a simple, educational story about two young girls whose friendship is put to the test. It starts with an introduction to Eunice and Kate. We learn about them and how close and deep their friendship is. But when they are told in class to draw a portrait of each other, they stop and think. Then they both proceed to draw the other in their preferred style. When they show their portraits they both say, “That’s not me,” and they walk home separately for the first time. When they each reach home, their mothers say that they know you well. The mothers saw “the laughter she drew” on her face and “the lovely color she used” for her heart. Both mothers were able to see the good, almost unseen qualities that each had drawn for each other, not the overcoming “conflict” of their preferences. As a result of their mother’s wisdom, Eunice and Kate were able to effectively express their appreciation for each other and their friendship. This is why I recommend this book to young kids. They may not understand yet that some people see them differently and that they need to accept everyone for who they are. This book does this in the simplest way I’ve ever seen. To conclude, this is a great, educational story for younger kids that teaches them vital life lessons.
