The little brown bunny hopped and bopped around as the blue bird swooped down to play with him. They played among the flowers and the bird sat on a red polka dot mushroom as the bunny peeked out from under its cap. Soon summer arrived and they played by the pond in the dark, trying to catch fireflies as they lit up the sky. When fall came around, they played with acorns and oak leaves. Soon the bird said to the little brown bunny, "Now I must fly south." He had promised to come back, but would the little brown bunny's forever friend return?
This whimsical tale of a "forever" friendship will delight young children. The story was very simple, but very appealing as the two forever friends played though the seasons. It is a tale of separation at the end, but of course the friends were eventually reunited. The lovely collage is quite well done, so much so that with the exception of graph and lined paper, it looks as if the pages were painted. This is a lovely quaint tale that your little one will ask for time and time again, one that you may wish to add to your collection!
In this story, a blue bird and a bunny form a fast friendship. Over the course of the year, they enjoy spending time together, until the fall, when blue bird must fly south for the winter. Bunny waits for the return of his friend and blue bird finds their separation just as difficult. In the spring, they are joyfully reunited, with another pleasant year ahead of them.
Collage is one of my favorite mediums, and Berger uses sharp, exactly cut, found media to strong effect. Most of the pages feature lined notebook or graph paper backgrounds. Many of the flowers and trees are cut from magazines with a only a smidgen of the original words remaining. In many ways, Forever Friends reminded me of that old favorite, The Golden Egg, by Margaret Wise Brown; classic, simple, and true. The bunny asleep in the log, especially seemed to hearken back to Brown's original. The theme of friendship despite their obvious differences put me in mind of a much younger version of the Toot and Puddle series by Holly Hobbie, a little bit too. Short declarative sentences, paired with several pages of wordless frolicking make this book a natural for very young audiences.
