About Virgil & Owen Stick Together:
“[A]n amusing and helpful reminder of the pluses and minuses of an opposites-attract friendship.”—Publishers Weekly
“[W]ill offer plenty of opportunities for conversations about patience, friendship, and forgiveness, and the snowy high jinks make for a fun storytime.”—Booklist
“This charming selection teaches kids that sometimes it takes a little bit of compromise to make a friendship work… A good pick for storytimes, and a sweet general purchase for most collections.”—School Library Journal
“Bogan’s story explores a common toddler impulse—interruption—with sensitivity and humor…a great discussion starter on reading friends’ cues…a welcome glimpse into child sensibilities.”—Kirkus Reviews
Virgil and Owen are best friends! They love playing together at home and at school. But sometimes even best friends can be very different. Virgil loves to be the first one to school. Owen likes to take his time. Virgil always raises his hand the fastest. Owen likes to think things through. One day Virgil hurries Owen a bit too much, and their friendship is suddenly on thin ice. Will Virgil be able to see that a little patience goes a long way between friends?
