Best Friends, written by Doug Kauffmann and illustrated by Cherry Smith, is a tender story of two brothers, one nineteen years old and the other nine, who spend an afternoon at the beach before the older brother prepares to say goodbye and head back to college.
The brothers do all their favorite things: eat Kentucky Fried Chicken, drink Cokes, build a sand castle, and toss a football. Later, in the quiet of the day, they have a brothers-only conversation about the love of Jesus. They are best friends, and neither wants the day to end.
