A very cute book about Alfie going to a birthday party alone. He decides to bring his comfort blanket and refuses to put it down to play with bubbles or eat. His birthday friend decides to scare his friends with a tiger mask and frightens the other children. Alfie decides to put his safety blanket down and hold both of his friends hands and resolve the issue. This is a good book to help little kids who are being presented with no having their mom and dads with them at all times. For instance, the first day of prek.
Alfie has been invited to a birthday party but when he realizes his mom isn't going to be there he gets scared.Alfie takes his blanket with him to the party but soon he finds it difficult to play while holding his blanket but he still keeps hold of it. But when Min refuses to play unless Alfie holds her hand he puts down his blanket so that he can play and hold Mins hand. This is such a nice story and would be fun to read to little kids.
