I adore books as tools to teach kids about real life lessons, social issues and situations. Stories that help them understand the world that give me a tool as a parent to discuss important things with them are the best kind of stories to share. Recently I was sent a couple of these cute friendship books for children. Although my kids are older now, I was happy to share them with my niece and nephew. All kids need help figuring out friendships and what friends do and don’t do. The Things I Love About Friends is one of my new favourite Friendship Books for Children. The basic concepts are all here. Reading about healthy friendships in age appropriate terms might help to encourage children to build strong friendships and walk away from ones that are not so healthy. Reading with your child about concepts like these helps them to build self esteem.
The Things I Love About Friends (Insight Editions / $10.99 / March 2015) celebrates the everyday events that make up your child’s experiences, while emphasizing the importance of sharing ideas, interests, goals, and feelings with others.
There are so many things to love about friends — sharing ideas, interests, feelings, and fun times. It’s important to learn how to be a good friend. This book in The Things I Love series by Trace Moroney celebrates the everyday situations that form the basis of our children’s experiences. Spending time with your children and giving them love and care helps them to celebrate who they are, building resilience and self-respect.
This beautifully produced series shows examples of creating positive thought. It has been carefully designed to help children feel loved, nurtured, accepted, and safe, ultimately increasing their confidence and self-esteem.
The Things I Love About Friends is a cute book with an important message. This is a great gift for any child. I recommend for children between 3 to 5.
