As a teacher and parent... I loved this book!
“Make a Friend, Be a Friend” just moved to the top of the ranks in my classroom for teaching my kindergarteners about friendship. If you’re shopping for friendship books, you know making friends is hard for lots of kids. While there are many lovely books about friendship on the market, their subtle messages are often lost on the kids that need them the most. “Make a Friend, Be a Friend” actually decodes the friendship process using language that kids can understand and it’s really funny too! What set this book apart for me were the practical action steps that kids can use when forming and navigating friendships. I’ll be working through this chapter by chapter with my kindergarteners, but this would be a great independent read for kids ages 7-10. The book also comes with a fantastic downloadable “Leader’s Guide” filled with great questions and activities to extend the learning. The friendship strategies in this book will connect with kids and the goofy humor will keep them coming back for more. I can’t wait to share this with my students! I was given an advance copy of the book in exchange for an honest review
