Lucas is looking everywhere for a best friend; the park, the circus, by the lake, and at school. He meets a lot of people along the way. But what about a best friend? This entertaining and colorful book is full of details for kids to search and find. Every spread features line drawings that are humming with activity. From an animal hospital populated with every kind of pet to an office filled with workers too busy working to give Lucas the time of day; from a restaurant that appears to serve only sandwiches and salad to a botanic garden where the visitors are just as strange as the plants. As Lucas travels around the city, he meets a lot of people, but will he find a best friend? Young readers will turn again and again to these drawings, discovering new details each time, and sparking their own ideas about how people interact in everyday situations. Many look and find questions will increase the fun and help to spot even more details.


Bucketloads of Friends: A Look and Find Book, is an interactive book that is fun and satisfying to read. The book introduces you to a boy named Lucas who is in search of a best friend. While searching for a friend, he has a journey which is unique and amazing. During his journey, he visits different places and scenes. These range from a concert, to a park, a birthday party, and many more places. Each time Lucas travels to a new place he tells you a little bit about what is going on and where he is. Then he asks you to find a few things: maybe someone spilling coffee, lost glasses, and so-on. 

As you go through the story you will see some characters showing up in every scene. My youngest daughter Lillian didn’t notice this at first, then she pointed out a man with a briefcase. She said, “look, mom, he is everywhere we go.” This is a fun little interactive book to involve your kids by having them search for things but also spark conversations about diverse places. In the end, however, Lucas didn’t find his best friend, but he did have a wonderful adventure.
