An African American little girl describes why her best friend is so great. Her friend is able to run faster, jump higher, read, and button her own clothes. This does not make the little girl jealous, instead it makes her proud to have such a talented best friend. The friend who is able to do so much also admires her friend. Although the one little girl can not do all of these things, she is able to shut the window and assure her friend that a monster is not coming. The two girls are an excellent example of how friendships should be.
