Staff Reviews

I’m Sticking with You is all about how to get along.  There are times when friends do overstep their bounds but you can spend too much time with them.  But when you get back together things are good.   It’s so fun to watch the Squirrel’s facial expressions through the whole book.


— From Singular September Staff Picks

This is a sweet book about best friends Bear and Squirrel. They spend all their time together, and try being apart for a little, but realize they do best when they’re with each other. They show true friendship and loyalty by sticking by each other, even when things go awry. It’s a lovely show of sticking with each other through thick and thin.

From Smriti Prasadam-Halls, the internationally bestselling author of I Love You Night and Day comes the charming picture book I'm Sticking with You, a sweet celebration of friendship.

Bear and Squirrel are best friends. Wherever Squirrel goes, Bear follows. Bear vows to stick with Squirrel whether he’s grumpy, or silly, or mad—which is put to the test when Bear sinks Squirrel’s canoe. And catapults him from the seesaw. And breaks his favorite mug.

Finally, Squirrel has had enough. He tells Bear he needs his space—only to realize he has much more fun with his best friend around. Funny and poignant in equal measure, I'm Sticking with You shows that friendship always finds a way.
