               I adore this little book. It is short    same. Hands immediately started          new. You would just look at the same,
               and sweet and powerful. With just        to raise three pages into the story      same things.
               one line per page, a story unfolds       with thoughtful, reflective
               of friends who greatly admire one        comments regarding the                     What powerful thinking from
               another. The artistic rabbit and         characters’ yearning to be just like       these clever little minds. We
               pig gaze at one another while            their friend.                              quickly followed up with
               working at their easel and express,                                                 Genevieve Cote’s Without You, a

               start to use art materials to look         be different.                            characters through the realization
               like their friend. Though the text       - Nothing would be fun.                    that you may become frustrated
               is brief it is actually quite lyrical:   - Life wouldn’t be good.                   and disagree with a dear friend
               “My tail would be as                     - You won’t see another beautiful person. from time to time and want to be
