From your Old Friends to your New FriendsBook - 2001
When families move from one neighborhood to another, it is often a difficult experience for younger boys and girls. Often, it means losing touch with old friends and having to make new ones. This sensitively written book with appealing full-color illustrations on every page explores children's mixed emotions at such times. The boys and girls in this story recall the fun they had sharing games and secrets with old friends. Now, in among a new group of children, they are afraid of being left out. The narrative helps young readers explore their feelings at such times and guides them through the process of making new friends while keeping in contact with old ones. The book offers kids reassurance--and two pages at the back of the book also present guidelines for moms and dads when moving time approaches or other changes occur.
