Today is the day the exuberant Lucy is going to make a new friend! But she finds it's harder than she had thought—she accidentally ruins the giraffe's breakfast and is much too big for the frogs' pond. Just when she's about to give up, an unexpected friend finds her, and loves her just the way she is.

This heartwarming story offers a unique and humor-filled spin on the all-important themes of persistence and friendship.

I really liked this one, Lucy the Bear is so funny. She tells everyone that they should be friends with her even though they don't want to be friends with her... but I WOULD BE FRIENDS WITH LUCY!

I bought this book for my 4 year old son. He enjoys the illustrations and understands the message. He can't force people to be his friend. Glad I bought it.

Lucy wants to find a new friend today. In her enthusiasm, she scares off many potential friends. Finally, just as Lucy is about to give up, a flamingo approaches Lucy and asks (in flamingo talk) to be her friend.¿She came close to making friends a few times.`Thanks for inviting me to lunch!¿But something always went wrong.`Sorry I ate your house!¿(Illustration shows Lucy, with honey dripping off her face and hands, running away from a beehive that has been half consumed.)A satisfying story, with plenty of drama and truth and humor for everyone.

I don't have a Nook color, just the app on my iPad. I didn't realize this would not work without the actual Nook Color. I never would have spent 6.99 on this had I read the fine print. I love the story and wanted to share it with my children.

I read this to my 3 yr old daughter - she didn't seem interested. The pictures are cute, but the story is kind of hard to read (see if you can view a pic of a page) as it's not written as a normal story in paragraphs, but what the characters say in word balloons. I would not recommend this, I would suggest other books for a better story. We actually returned the book.

An okay kids' book for little ones 1 - 3. Odd narration, by a man who doesn't "do" girl voices.
