SCH035 Yo! Yes?, Illustrator Chris Raschka, boardbook
This Caldecott Honor classic is a simple yet important story about friendship. Now in board book format for the youngest readers!
Two lonely boys meet on a street. “Yo!” says one. “Yes?” says the other. And so begins a conversation that turns strangers into friends. With vibrant illustrations, Chris Raschka’s rhythmic read-aloud is a celebration of differences — and how it just takes a few words to overcome them.
The continued relevance of this title makes it perfect for young readers as it emphasizes that friendship can come from just a few simple words, if two people are willing to make a connection.
