This novelty book is perfect for on-the-go play or quiet time reading. The book opens up to reveal a carousel with friends riding on large cats, swans, unicorns, and butterflies.

This tiny board book is perfect for toddlers’ hands and in just a few words on each page, begins to teach your child all the joys of friendship.

Diverse children are shown on each page with a heart connecting the two pages. Kids will learn that friends always hug and make up and friends are always here for you.

The book has a ribbon to tie open as a carousel or to keep it closed. The material is thick and sturdy to hold up to lots of toddler reading and playing. Because each page has a detailed cut, there are also a lot of textures for a child to feel including the indented heart in the center of each page.

Suzy Ultman is an artist, doodler, designer, and crafter. She has lived on three different continents and embraced the culture and communities of each, allowing them to influence her visual aesthetic. Suzy Ultman grew up playing in the woods and collecting stickers with her two sisters. Today she’s a crafty girl—she loves to bake, sew, and build—while bird-watching with her kids in their backyard “nature channel” keeps her balanced. She lives in Columbus, Ohio, with her family.
