Chill


Chill Chill by Carol Thompson (Little Hare)
HB RRP $16.95
ISBN 978-192154173-5

Dolly is a cute little pig that loves to play on her own for some games and with her best friend, Jack Rabbit, for others. We follow the pair as they play and laugh and paint. 


Unfortunately, one friend takes offense to a portrait and they argue. The argument escalates and the friendship breaks down. When alone, both characters are angry, then upset and then sad. They both learn to chill and concentrate on the things that matter the most to them, leading them back to friendship.

This is an endearing little story. The language and situation are accessible and easy to relate to. The graphics are simple and highly complimentary. It is a good book to teach the very young to chill and focus on friendship not anger.
