Our Thoughts on Cyril and Pat

A beautifully illustrated picture storybook that showcases the importance of friendship. From how lonely it can be without a friend, the fun that they can have together. To the differences between them, especially when everyone is saying that you can’t be friends.

As a new school year approaches, it can be overwhelming for children to form friendships. This book helps them relate to the qualities that friends offer. Be prepared to have your hearts melted by the touching duo and learn that friendship is truly worth fighting for in this funny yet tender story.
