This is E's best friend O. They are two peas in a pod and have been since infancy.
In five weeks, O and his family will be moving away, and E will lose her apple-cheeked playmate.
Which is why I was thrilled to find such a wonderful book to help her prepare...
Half A World Away by Libby Gleeson
This darling book tells the story of best friends Amy and Louie.
These kindred spirits do everything together and even have a special call when they need the other.
But when Amy's family moves halfway around the world, both children are saddened and think of the other every day and every night, every night and every day.
When Louie asks his grandmother if Amy will hear him if he calls her loudly enough, she tells him to try. "Coo-ee, Am-ee!" Across the globe Amy wakes up having dreamed of Louie... and Louie falls asleep dreaming of Amy.
It's a beautiful story on the enduring love of friendship that soothes my heart as I prepare to say goodbye to my best friend... O's mom.
