A SPECIAL TRADE, Harper, 1978
Nelly and Bartholomew are neighbors. When Nelly is small, Bartholomew pushes her in the stroller. They

CHAARRRRRGE! Through Mrs. Pringle’s sprinkler. They BUMP over Mr. Oliver’s driveway. The neighbors call them “ham and eggs” because they are always together—even on the coldest day of winter when everyone else is inside. As Bartholomew gets older, things start to change. But Nelly is older, too, and the change is really a trade—a special trade. The droll text and whimsical illustrations combine perfectly in a story about friendship for very young children. Ages 4-8 (or for all ages)
