virtually launching Best Friend in the Whole World, a charming picture book about compassion and friendship in which a lonely rabbit, a quiet pinecone, and their perfect bond are tested.
“Who is the ‘Best Friend in the Whole World’? After reading this sweet, sensitive tale, children can decide for themselves.”—New York Times
She’ll read her book and show us how to draw a best pine cone friend. Be sure to have your drawing materials ready! The book is recommended for ages 3-7.

Roland lives a quiet life filled with books, music, and tea parties for one, but sometimes he feels rather lonely. When Roland finds the perfect companion in Milton (Good listener! Enjoys music! Also alone!), he is overjoyed. It’s okay that Milton is just a pine cone; they have so much in common. But clues start popping up in the woods, suggesting someone else might be missing their best pine cone friend. Roland must decide if it’s worth leaving someone else in their loneliness to keep Milton in his life.
