Chirp! Chipmunk Sings For A Friend | Book Review

Chirp! Chipmunk Sings For A Friend brings out a beautiful story of friendship, feelings through singing and a quest of to find it. – Momma Braga


Chipmunk lives on a rock.

Every day she chirp, chirp, chirps from sunup to sundown.

Often her songs are of the bittersweet sort because Rock, while a good listener, cannot sing along. And so Chipmunk goes off on a quest to find a friend to join her in song.

Chipmunk’s quest doesn’t go exactly as planned (quests rarely do), but ultimately, she finds friendship (and harmony) where she least expects it.


Chirp! Chipmunk Sings For A Friend is an adorable children’s book that brings out the beauty of friendship and how we can find it when we least expect it.

We go along with Chipmunk on her quest to find another friend to sing with her. On this quest, she finds unexpected friendship and even finds a listening friend for Rock too!

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 5 chirps out of 5! A heartwarming story of friendship, feelings through song and adventure. It reminds us how special building relationships where we least expect it. We loved it from beginning to end!

This book is great for children ages four to eight and if you would like to purchase a copy, click here.
