Jake and Rosie

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Jake and Rosie lived next door to each other and were the best of friends. They did everything together. Sometimes they pretended to be twins, sometimes they pretended to be pirates, but they always had fun. One day, Jake knocked on Rosie’s door, but nobody answered. He waited and waited and was afraid she was never coming back. But she does, with a nice surprise for Jake. Originally published in 1989 and long out of print, this delightful tale of friendship is now available as an eBook. Preschool - Grade 2.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 27, 1989 – Lillie's story begins well, with a genuine sense of what being ``best friends'' means to children, but ultimately, its emotional content is slight. Jake and Rosie are the same size and like to do the same things, so they decide to be twins, dressing identically except for their shoes. One day Jake knocks on Rosie's door, only to find that no one is home. Roughly half the book is devoted to Jake's desolation over this fact. Then Rosie returns from shopping with her mother--with new shoes just like Jake's. The illustrations are full of affection and capture child-like postures and expressions well, and, because the two friends are not only of different gender but also of different races, a nice lesson is implied. But the belabored focus on what seems a minor crisis-and-resolution makes this easy to put aside after one reading. Ages 4-up.
