Meesha loves making things, but she finds it hard to make friends. She doesn't know quite what to do, what to say, or when to say it, and she struggles reading and responding to social cues. But one day, she discovers that she has a special talent that will help her navigate challenging social situations and make friends.
A warm and affectionate look at the joys and difficulties of making and keeping friends, relating to others, and finding your place in the world, this new title in the Big Bright Feelings series by Tom Percival is the perfect picture book for helping children understand how to be accepting of others.
"One day, her mom tells her they are going to a party. Meesha is worried. And at first, her fears come true. The party is 'noisy, chaotic, and unpredictable,' and she doesn’t know how to join in. So she finds a quiet corner and begins creating friends of her own again. But this time, her created friends lead to making friends with other children.... Without labels or categories, this story puts words and pictures to feelings and traits that are difficult to articulate and explain, making this book helpful both for children who can relate to Meesha’s experience and for those who don’t understand such feelings." — Kirkus Reviews
