Review:
Children learn about friendship through well-chosen picture books and personal stories in this video collage. Enemy Pie, the featured book by Derek Munson, cleverly pairs a young boy with his “enemy” for a whole day. Dad pronounces that this is a requirement of baking an “enemy pie,” and the two learn to appreciate each other. Several children share their anecdotes and feelings about their friends, and two young girls from different cultural backgrounds spend some quality exchange time. This interesting production could be used as a catalyst for discussion, in a family or group setting.
