Mary and Clare are best friends. But watching her best friend get special attention at preschool because it’s her birthday is tough on Clare. At snacktime there is a pink-themed party for pink-clad Mary, and by the time snack is over, yellow-clad Clare has had enough. “Yellow is prettier than plain old pink,” she declares, and before long both are yelling, “YOU ARE NOT MY FRIEND!” After a little distance and a little nap, all is right again in Margaret Chodos-Irvine’s bright, boldly illustrated, charmingly realistic story portraying a scenario that is recognizable and compelling for many young children. Highly Commended, 2007 Charlotte Zolotow Award (Ages 3–6)
