May I Bring a Friend?Book Review
May I Bring a Friend? by Beatrice Schenk De Regniers is one of those special children’s picture books we all must love. And for that, it gets 4+ out of 5 stars from this book lover.

I taught this story when I was teaching a class back in college as part of a collection of books on lessons for first graders back in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Imagine being invited to tea by the King and Queen, and having the audacity to ask if you could bring a friend… What could the royal couple do but say yes. And they say yes for several days, all the time our main character brings a new friend from the zoo each and every time. And how will they fit in the castle? And what if they need water? And how do they speak? So many questions for children. But it’s adorable… full of great pictures and rhymes to help with memory. And in the end, the lessons are fantastic. To teach children to be kind to everyone no matter their differences. Oh… what a fun memory for today.
