Tell Me Who Your Friend Is

A picture book of Armenian folktale that tells the adventures of a little mouse in a quest for a friend.

DESCRIPTION

In this cumulative story, Little Mouse is looking for a friend. He asks the sun to become his friend, but the sun sends him to the cloud; the cloud, to the wind; the wind, to the tree. Finally, the mouse realizes that the best friend for him would be another mouse.

Retold by Alidz Agbabian, the story emphasizes the wisdom of choosing one’s friend according to one’s values. Original characters, created by talented children’s book author and illustrator Anahid Sarkissian, and simple language patterns make this book easy and enjoyable for its intended audience of 3-7 old listeners and beginner readers.

The song, composed by children’s music specialist Lucina Agbabian-Hubbard, is based on Armenian folk music idioms and is within singing range of young readers.
