Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In the simple to read picture book, an average looking school aged girl shows us different ways to make and keep old and new friends. The book uses children from different ethnic groups and those with physical disabilities. The settings change as the young girl shows difference approaches to what we should do in a variety of diverse situations. We venture into classrooms, playgrounds, and go on a field trip. We watch as the children read books aloud, make creative artwork from shells, play games, and work together to create a masterpiece. The illustrations by Meredith Johnson bring the characters’ emotions to life through facial and physical characteristics, including a picture of the children clapping and laughing on page 26, or our young friend crying on page 23. We could feel their happiness and their pain. The bold print and easy vocabulary make it possible for this book to be shared or read independently by preschool to first grade as they begin to learn how to interact within small and large groups of people. Cheri J. Meiner, author and teacher, is well versed about how children need guidance on the proper way to interact in a variety of settings. I also appreciated that she includes an extension of questions and activities which enrich the book. As an educator myself I found this section useful and creative. On the last page they list more titles from the “Learning to Get Along” series. I would imagine this would be a good collection for any teacher or counselor. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
