Review: There's Only One Friend Like You

A celebration of friendship, There’s Only One Friend Like You explores all the ways friends care for each other, through thick and thin, through good and bad.

Lots of friends or just a few, friends for a short time or friends forever, our friends are there to love and cherish when we need them most. 

Written in delightful rhyme, with some lovely surprise pages turned on the side, this is a beautiful picture book to read with loved ones and classrooms. 

Jess Racklyeft’s illustrations are blooming with love, vibrant colours, soft water colour splashes and lots of glorious details to spot (like the peacock with the fabulous pair of red boots!). 

This is one of those amazing books that works for lots of different ages. Read a beautifully flowing bedtime rhyme for the little ones, have fun spotting funky details with toddlers and learn about feelings, emotions, empathy and friendship with your classrooms. 

Beautiful to look at and beautiful to read, There’s Only One Friend Like You is a picture book stunner.
