This book is very brief, but has a wonderful message for very young children. My wife really loves Noel Piper's other books.

Format: Hardcover
Last month my girls enjoyed listening to Noel Piper's Most of All, Jesus Loves You!, so last night I decided to read them the sequel, Do You Want a Friend?. It is uncommon for sequels to be better than the originals, but I definitely think that is the case here.

Like in Most of All, Jesus Loves You!, the illustrations in Do You Want a Friend? are great. All kinds of people are found throughout the pages of this book. There is a child with red hair, an Asian child playing with an African-American child, people who are physically challenged and more.

The story starts off with a little boy who is lonely in his new neighborhood. He wants a friend so he starts crying out for friends. He begins to find all kinds of friends.

The story then begins to ask questions about the type of friend you would like - one who loves you?, one who comforts you?, one who helps you to be strong?, one who wants to be with you?, one who helps you know God?, one who prays for you?, one who makes you happy?, one who forgives you when you do something wrong?, one who helps you do good? and one who will save you from danger?. Verses are found after each question: Romans 8:38-39, 2 Corinthians 1:5, Hebrews 13:5, 20-21, John 3:16, 15:11, 13, 15, 17:1, 9, Ephesians 1:7, 2:10 and Matthew 1:21.

The book ends telling us that we can have a lot of friends, but that only Jesus is the perfect friend. We often sin, but Jesus is still our friend. He died for us, conquered death and saved us. He is our best friend. This is the message I want my girls to hear.

John Newton's hymn, One There Is, Above All Others, is provided at the end of the book.

Every child wants and needs friends. While most friends come and go in a child's life, there is one friend that will be a life-long companion wherever that child lives, plays, or goes to school. That constant friend is Jesus. This is the fundamental message in Noel Piper's charmingly written book for young children "Do You Want A Friend?". Wonderfully illustrated on every page by Gail Schoonmaker, this thoroughly entertaining picture book is an ideal and enthusiastically recommended addition to family and Sunday School library collections.
