Such a super sweet story -- and I use it to talk with kids about personality and that we don't all need to be the same.

this book is about two friends that are opposites. pearl barley is really up beat and energetic and charlie parsley is inroverted and calm. after showing how different they are, the book asks how they could possibly be friends. well as it turns out pearl's energetic nature cheers charlie up when he's down and charlie' practial nature helps pearl out, at one point he puts mittens on her hands when she's cold.

it's a good book about how opposites can attract and how you don't have to be the same as someone to be their friend. the pictures are colourful and very expressive.

We have this book at our school as a counseling resource for my friendship group. It's definitely a wonderful heartwarming book that teaches about how two people can be very different and still be wonderful friends (my future husband and I have a similar relationship :) Lovely book with beautiful illustrations and a simple story. Would definitely recommend it for the younger grades K-2.
