Thank You for Being a Friend

Where would we be without our friends?  As the holidays approach, we often find ourselves reflecting on the past year and also the things we're thankful for: our families, our health, and, of course, our friends to name a few!  New or old, near or far, our friendships can help us celebrate the good times as well as prop us up and support us when we need it most.  Take a look at these great books celebrating friendship in its many forms!
