Marcella is going to the park to meet her pals. The dolls come along too, and while the girls are busy playing and picnicking, Raggedy Ann and Andy, along with Uncle Clem and the Camel with the Wrinkled Knees, make some new friends too! Join Raggedy Ann and Andy as they learn about friends of all kinds and what makes each one special.

This Level One Ready-to-Read incorporates the old camp song, "Make New Friends, But Keep the Old," into the storyline,, underscoring the importance of friendship, loyalty, and inclusiveness. Written with simple sentences using familiar words and phrases. Suitable for early readers who are recognizing words and are beginning to read aloud or silently by themselves.


"This is an early reader every Brownie troop (as well as moms and teachers who confront the problem of new friends or old friends feeling left out) should adopt! Patricia Hall has a knack for writing early readers that are enjoyable stories, so don't toss this one aside just for beginning readers to decode themselves. It's a readable story about Marcella and her Raggedy Ann and Andy friends learning to make new friends, but treasuring their old ones--a lesson we all need to remember!"
