More about this book :

This story belongs to the collection of My New World.
Making and keeping friendship is an everyday life challenge. Friends prevent child loneliness and offer children sufficient companionship, too. Friendship increases a sense of belonging and purpose. And more importantly, it reduces children’s social stress. Making friends is a social skill which also helps children develop, and sort out conflicts and problems. Children with such important skills are less likely to have social and emotional difficulties. The present story tells us how to keep and strengthen friendships and be honest with one another. When you can count on each other, it means that the relationship has become a true friendship. Having trust and confidence in a friend is one of the most important requirements of a strong relationship.
