My 7 years old son loved it. He got in trouble for some misbehavior at school and I wanted to chose a book that would help him understand that his actions can affect his friends; and this book was perfect because didn't focus on bad behavior, but also on the good ones. The illustrations are very colorful and it is so beautiful. My son said that this was a good book because is teaching him how to keep his friend, he even took to his class to share with his classmates. I do recommend, even if your child doesn't have any behavior problem, this is a guide for a good social life.

This book would be good to read and discuss in kindergraden. It talks about different ways to be a good friend and talks about ways to make friends. I liked this book because it talks about bullies, which is a problem in schools. You could read this book and have kids write about there friends and fights that students have had with there friends.

I really enjoyed reading "How To Be A Friend". I think that this book should be for first through third grade. It seems a little to long and to complicated for kindergaten but to young for fourth, fifth, and sixth grade. The book teaches children how to handle many situations with friends. It explains how to make friends, how to share, and even how to settle arguments with friends. I think that this book has a lot of important points that children should learn. The number one friend rule is to treat others as you would want to be treated and this book does a wonderful job at explaining that to children.

This book is something important to have in your classroom esp. if you have kindergarten or first grade. It is about how to make friends and keep them and shows children the basic steps to do so. This book also helps children feel comfortable about being outgoing and making friends at playgrounds, schools and other public places.
