In one of our favorite books, City Dog, Country Frog by Mo Willems, we see the formation of an unlikely friendship between a city-living dog and a country-dwelling frog. Each winter and spring, they meet in their respective locations to play games with each other. One spring, Country Frog is moving a little slower than usual, so the pair decide to play “remembering games.” When Country Frog stops showing up at their usual spot, City Dog learns how to mourn and cope with losing his friend. Luckily, Country Chipmunk shows up to start a new friendship and remind City Dog that friendship knows no bounds!
