Chester’s Way

Chester and Wilson had their own way of doing things, and they did everything together. When they cut their sandwiches, it was always diagonally. When they rode their bikes, they always used hand signals. If Chester was hungry, Wilson was too. They were two of a kind, and that's the way it was - until indomitable Lilly, who had her own way of doing things, moved into the neighborhood.

Kevin Henkes created a wonderful story about friendship in Chester’s Way. The story begins by describing Chester, a young personified mouse who likes everything a certain way. His best friend Wilson has very similar interests, and they do everything together. When Lilly moves into their neighborhood, Chester and Wilson do not quite know what to make of her strange way of doing things. When she tries to befriend them, they find ways of ignoring her. 

One day, some older mice begin to make fun of Chester and Wilson when they are riding their bikes. Lilly, disguised as a cat, jumps out of the bushes and scares the bullies away. To show their gratitude, Chester and Wilson soon befriend her and learn to try some new things.

There are many illustrations in this book. The text is broken up into small sentences and paragraphs so that each new action and event can be given its own illustration. The illustrations are very colorful, and some of them provide extra clues to understand the text.

This is a wonderful story to share with children to encourage them to befriend others and try new things.
