The Blessings of Freindship: Treasury - Book Review


From the young to the young at heart, this book is pure delight!
Mary Engelbreit is widely popular for her gorgeously detailed books, which include whimsical drawings and words of friendship, wisdom, love, scripture.  Each of the pages are bold and colorful, drawing the eye right in to the attention to detail she puts into her books.  This book is just magical.  Each of the 40 pages are a blessing indeed!
The pages are detailed with lush watercolor looks, classic Engelbreit style bold lettering and images of 'real life': boys running with their little dogs, girls in the schoolyard, playing down by the street skipping rocks on a hot day, picking flowers .......  sheer beauty in each page!  The small descriptions of friendship makes this book burst with positive words and lovely admirations for friends to share, sprinkled with quotes from famous authors, philosophers, and the bible, to name a few. 
While the book's jacket states this is 4-8 years old, this book immediately struck me as gift giving quality.  I'd proudly give this to any friend in my 40+ year age quality - it's that unique, that beautiful, that much a gift to treasure years down the road.  It would also serve as a great graduation gift,
or for the new baby born into a family.
