Coconut's Guide to Life: Life Lessons from a Girl's Best Friend, illus. by Casey Lukatz, offers cheerful tips from sharing the sunny spot to starting each day wagging your tail.

Children's Literature
Coconut is a cute little puppy. She has learned some lessons about life, school and friends. She is happy to share this information in decorated pages designed especially for "tween" girls. Pastel pinks, purple and orange pages embellished with lots of flowers. Coconut says that friends are everywhere and they are good listeners. Friends mess up sometimes, but apologies can make everything right again. If you follow your heart you can be true to yourself. At school it is important to be prepared, stay focused and speak up in class. When you have the jitters, practice, breathe, concentrate and enjoy. Happiness is having someone to love, napping in a sunny spot and snuggling up with something soft. A feel good book, it could inspire a young girl or help her through a tough time. Coconut is very cute. A pull out photo frame is the last page, with the thought "A true friend stays by your side." 2003, Pleasant Company, Ages 7 to 12.
