This fun book is filled with catchy rhyming raps about friendship and divided into chapters about various aspects of friendships. This arrangement makes it easier to introduce this book to children, as it is perfect to use in a music class lesson. The raps are age-appropriate and focus on a wonderful and relatable topic. The last few pages of the book guide readers in how to write a rap of their own.
