Growing Friendships is a funny and practical book that helps children build the friendships they crave. It’s filled with cartoons showing common friendship challenges and research-based solutions, plus silly cat and dog characters who make goofy suggestions such as: “He should sniff their butts!”
Topics covered: Reaching Out to Make Friends, Stepping Back to Keep Friends, Blending in to Join Friends, Speaking Up to Share With Friends, and Letting Go to Accept Friends.
From our NAPPA Team: The book is easy to read and includes cartoons with samples of things to say and not to say. It serves as a wonderful reference for young children. We encourage parents to read it with their child and use the ideas from the book as a conversation starter.
