A delightful book about how to be a kind and thoughtful friend, perfectly pitched for children starting school.
Friendships are precious, but they can also be tricky to navigate - especially when you're little. In this charming and supremely sensitive book, we meet Sukie and Joe: two children making friends for the first time. With words by Amanda McCardie, who has studied child development at the Tavistock, and pictures from Colleen Larmour, a rising star, Making Friends is the perfect tool for talking to very young children about friendship and everything that goes with it, from meeting new people to celebrating differences and standing up for one another.
"Remarkable ... a good starting place to help children talk through emotions." Observer on A Book of Feelings (McCardie)

Wonderfully expressive illustrations perfectly capture body language and gestures in just a few simple strokes, enabling young readers to understand how the characters are feeling. Simple text effectively describes emotions, such as the warm glow Sukie experiences when people are nice, or the crinkly sense of embarrassment when her offer of friendship is rejected.
This subtle picture book is sure to help young people develop important skills of empathy and emotional intelligence.
