Booktalk: Bink & Gollie [Kate DiCamillo; 1]
Kate DiCamillo is one of my favorite children’s authors. In her latest book, Bink & Gollie, you can see how different Bink [using the book’s cover, point to Bink, the short blonde] and Gollie [tall, brunette] are. Like most friends, they have their differences. Bink loves crazy, wildly colored socks. Gollie does not. Bink likes taking her pet fish, Fred, to the movies. Gollie does not. Gollie longs to go on long journeys in the mountains without a snack. Bink does not: not at least, without a snack. But in spite of their differences, you can tell they’re super loyal best friends to one another. One more reason to read this book: you have to check out their tree house. These two best friends have the coolest tree house ever! Bink & Gollie by Kate DiCamillo.
