places to be

"We have so many places to be!

Places to be loud

and lovely

and scared

and jubilant."

A tribute to good friends and the countless experiences we have with them.  Sweet, sincere, funny and reassuring, Places to Be also reminds children that no matter where they are, what they're feeling and what they encounter, the world is made for them to embrace and explore.  And having a trustworthy friend with you while you're out there is always a good idea.

Places to Be was written by Mac Barnett, illustrated by Renata Liwska and published by Balzer + Bray.
