What do friends do together? From a young age, people develop friendships and learn how to get to know different types of boys and girls. Some like thinking games, some like to race, some need a story to dispel the darkness, and some like to sit quietly next to a friend who keeps quiet alongside them. The story of Amos McGee describes the blossoming of a friendship full of warmth, compassion and innocence, a friendship where favors are repaid, and a helping hand is offered:
Love between friends exists at all times, on good days and at troubled times.
[The Metzudat David Commentary on Proverbs, 17:17]
