It Is Okay
It Is Okay
When Goat and Rabbit meet at the supermarket, they become friends in a heartbeat. Being friends can sometimes seem easy, but is it really so? Goat and Rabbit share many interests, but they are also quite different.
Goat thinks Rabbit puts too much sugar in his coffee, and Rabbit realizes Goat takes it very hard when they miss the train… But it is okay, because they are willing to find a way that works for both of them.
This is a quiet, clever picture book about being different but still friends. Sometimes we have to focus on what we have in common rather than what sets us apart.
