Friends Beyond Measure tells the story of a friendship, with charts and graphs on every page!

Ana and Harwin’s friendship has been off the charts since day one. But when Harwin learns her family is moving far away, the duo isn’t sure how their friendship can survive. See how their friend-o-meters calibrate in this imaginative, heartwarming story by New York Times infographics contributor Lalena Fisher.

Friends Beyond Measure explores the world of information graphics, with colorful hand-drawn maps, diagrams, charts, timelines, and more! From the chart showing how to make fairy tea to the map of the friends’ planned world exploration, every page is filled with delicious details for the reader to pore over.

An ideal read-aloud for classrooms, libraries, and homeschooling, this book includes backmatter that explains the different types of graphs in the book and gives suggestions for readers to create charts of their own.
