Picture Book Best Friends

I love the Mo Willem's Early Reader series about Elephant and Pig.  They are sweet stories about friendship.  Elephant and Pig are best friends though sometimes problems do arise like a broken toy or a misunderstanding.  This started me thinking about other best friends in picture books and there have been some great ones!



The Frog and Toad series by Arnold Lobel is a classic.  Each book about Frog and Toad contains several short tales about their adventures. 



And then there's George and Martha.  These two hippos, created by James Marshall, have taught us what it means to be a true friend.


There are certainly many more Best Friends in our picture book collections but these are my favorites.  If there are any you'd like to mention, please send me a comment.
