About the Author

 Mary Engelbreit grew up studying the illustrations in the vintage storybooks of her mother’s childhood, and she developed a unique style that harkens back to those simpler times. Mary’s distinctive images have made her a celebrity to millions, who eagerly snap up gift items, calendars, books, fabrics, and more.

Mary’s New York Times bestselling The Night Before Christmas is part of the holiday tradition for families across the country. Other beloved additions to a child’s first bookshelf are her New York Times bestselling Mary Engelbreit's Mother Goose and Mary Engelbreit's Nursery Tales, which are perfect companions to this volume.

My Review

The Blessings of Friendship Treasury by Mary Engelbreit is beautifully illustrated. It is a high quality book that any young girl would be delighted to receive. This is an updated version of the 2002 printing.

The Blessings of Friendship Treasury is filled with lovely illustrations by artist Mary Engelbreit, poems and stories that celebrate friendship. It also contains bible verses that pertain to love and friendship. A few quick anonymous verses in the book:

Friends are kisses blown to us by angels.

A friend is someone who knows all about you but loves you anyway.

This is a book that any young girl would treasure. I treasure it and I'm an adult! Highly recommend this beautiful volume. It is available August 2014.
