Adeline & Edward: Be A Friend!

Disclosure: I am a Kite Readers Raise-A-Reader Ambassador and was provided this product for review. However, all opinions expressed are my own. 

I believe that one of the hardest things in a child's life is making friends. Not all children are the same. There are the confident, out going ones that will walk up to another child and immediately ask them to play. Boom, friends! Then there are those that are quiet and introverted who are too shy to go up and talk to other children. I have both of these types of children in my household and it is a constant struggle. There are constant pep talks and meltdowns. So, I was very excited when I was asked to review a book about friendship. I was excited to read it with them and see how they processed it.

Summary: Adeline is excited and nervous about meeting the new student in class, Edward. What will he be like? She discusses her feelings with her mom and her mom suggests taking Edward a welcome gift. She decides to take a him a new sharpened pencil so he can use in Math class. He loves the pencil and in return offers her a flower. They become friends and agree to "pass it on" to others in their class. The lesson is to pass on friendship to others.

This book is aimed at children ages 3-9 and comes in both English and Spanish. I believe this book is perfect for anyone trying to make friends, no matter your age. Be kind to others. Treat others as you would like to be treated. These were the lessons my children picked up from this story. Also, be the one to take the first step. Don't be shy, be confident!

Adeline and Edward: Be A Friend is available for all e-readers and tablets on Amazon:
