Summary


"A delightfully silly story with a sweet heart." --Booklist

"Capybara is simply a hoot." --BCCB

Learn what lengths you do and DON'T need to go to in order to be a good friend! This hilarious picture book from Maddie Frost is perfect for social emotional learning!

Hi, hello. My name is Capybara and I think it's important to be a great friend. Take it from me, I have 4,382 friends!

Capybara will do anything for his friends. But it's exhausting--and when Capybara meets a potential new friend who doesn't seem to be responding to his advances, Capybara learns a valuable lesson. His friends like him just for who he is!

From the creator of Smug Seagull and Just be Jelly and illustrator of Shine Like a Unicorn comes a funny, heartwarming story about friendship.

This book is an excellent teaching tool for lessons on friendship and creating boundaries within those relationships. It is a funny story for families to share, and a great read-aloud at home or in the classroom!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Capybara begins each day with a bullhorn and an offer to assist any of his 4,382 pals. He's determined to be the absolute best friend to everyone, helping them with their chores. After, stunningly, he comes across a stranger he hasn't yet befriended, Capybara promptly serenades the unfamiliar sloth with a "new friend" song. When the sloth registers no reaction, nervous Capybara despairs that there must be something wrong with him, but the sloth finally descends from the tree and reveals that he was never reluctant, just naturally slower. A reassured Capybara realizes that perhaps he doesn't need to work quite so hard for his friendships and that his friends love him no matter what. It's a truly funny story, with an adorably anxious protagonist in Capybara, but it also manages to pack in some big messages about friendships and boundaries beyond the surface goofiness. The bright, cartoonish illustrations work in exuberant reactions and fun formatting, and Capybara's dramatic expressions are priceless. A delightfully silly story with a sweet heart."
