How to Grow A Friend

Making a friend takes patience, care, and room to bloom — just like a flower. You'll need to watch for signs your friend is drooping, so you can do something nice, and deal with the occasional pest, like when you don't agree! And if you grow your circle of friends wider and wider, soon you'll have a beautiful garden of people you love. This lovely metaphor teaches valuable lessons in how to treat others and make friendships blossom!

This board book is a perfect primer in mindfulness; it teaches patience and awareness of others in a way that will benefit a child meeting and interacting with someone new. Sara Gillingham's inviting, bold graphics are sure to captivate both children and their parents. Soon your little gardener will have their very own green thumb in this most important of life skills.

"There’s lots of movement and activity as water sprays from a sprinkler in dynamic curves and the children swing from a tree and race downhill in a wheelbarrow.... Upbeat without glossing over the effort needed to see friendships through 'rain and shine,' it’s a promising classroom readaloud." — Publishers Weekly
