Children's LiteratureKnowing how to play with other children and be a friend is an important social skill that needs to be taught at a young age. Cheri Meiners' book is a wonderful resource for a classroom teacher or a parent to support the emotional and social growth of young children and to reinforce the necessary skill of appropriate play. The book models different interactions and solutions in simple words with realistic illustrations. Presented in a gentle and positive way, this is a perfect read-aloud for a lesson about cooperation and friendship. Also, this book can be used as a reference when situations arise involving both positive behavior and problems relating to play. The large print, spacing, and familiar vocabulary make it ideal for the K/1 reader. An added bonus is an extra section at the end of the book for adults filled with extension activities. There are discussion questions, games, and suggestions for working with children to help them learn these important skills. Part of The Free Spirit "Learning To Get Along" series, these books assist young learners in understanding responsibility and having respect for themselves and others. A welcome addition to the library of anyone involved with the welfare of children. 2004, Free Spirit Publishing Inc, Ages 3 to 7.
