Book Review: My Friend Moe by Jennifer Sattler

Barron's celebrates differences, friendship, and acceptance with a new title called, My Friend Moe by Jennifer Satler.


An endearing, unforgettable story that helps children realize you don’t have to be exactly alike to be best friends. “In some ways we’re different. I’m big and Moe’s little. I can hula hoop. He just stands in the middle.” So begins this charming book, filled with endearing illustrations and funny text, about two very different characters. A guinea pig and his friend, Moe, have lots of traits that make them stand out. Most of the time, they aren’t alike at all, but it’s those differences that make them such great friends. Children will love seeing that true friends can be delighted by people who aren’t just like them…except in all the ways that really matter. (Ages 2–4)

In Emilee's opinion:

I enjoyed reading this cute book by Jennifer Sattler to my children. It was fun to relate to and I thought it was genius to have best friends that had differences. There are only two characters, a mouse named Moe and a guinea pig with no name. The guinea pig was the narrator and told us the different characteristics of his friend. I loved that the guinea pig still loved him no matter what. I thought it was well written and adorable. I definitely recommend reading this to your young children.
