Friends Forever

How do you tell a friend how you feel? With animals of course! Friends Forever is a heartwarming and heartening little book, with colorful photos from the animal kingdom paired with inspiring sayings that express the meaning of friendship.

These creatures show that friendship is important no matter your species!

Polar bears sleep for seven to eight hours at a time, and they are known to nap just about anywhere and anytime to conserve energy, particularly after feeding.

In addition to low chatter, clicking, and the occasional high-pitched yell, monkeys use nonverbal forms of communication—like snuggling and touching faces—to show emotion.

With their thick skin, stout bodies, and tusklike teeth, pigs are known for their ability to find food resources and to survive in almost any environment.

Rabbits, whose long ears give them a super-heightened sense of hearing, are relatively silent—which makes them even better listeners.

Named for their unusually fluffy, silklike plumage, Silkies are known for their easy, friendly personalities and are considered to be ideal pets.

The toucan's bright, oversize bill is mostly for show—it's a honeycomb of bone that actually contains a lot of air.i

Curious and exceptionally agile, goats wil go to great heights to escape enclosure—including climbing trees.

A very thirsty camel can drink 30 gallons (113.5 liters) of water in only 13 minutes. It slurps up the water and stores it for later sustenance.
