Fun and practical tips for how to be a good friend.

Make a Friend, Be a Friend

illustrated by Steve Mark

Available August 2021. Life is better with a friend. That’s true for everyone. Some kids have lots of friends. Others have a few. Either way is great! Make a Friend, Be a Friend helps young readers find ways to—you guessed it!—make friends and be a better friend.

That doesn’t mean making and being friends is a snap. Even though it’s natural, it doesn’t always feel that way. The ideas in this book can help. Children learn:
  • how to find and make friends
  • ways to show you want to be a friend
  • how to be a good friend
  • what to do when times get tough
A special feature, What Would You Do? A Story Starring YOU, invites readers to practice making friends and solving friendship problems. Includes a glossary of terms at the back of the book to equip and empower children with the vocabulary they need.
