My just-turned-9 year old loved this book, and has asked for other books in the series.

Or 'start talking with a girl that you want to be friends with by giving her a compliment like " I think your backpack is really cool".
Ms.Lew
This book really helped her to learn some of the social nuances found among young girls without me prying into her life too much.

I have a 9 yr. old daughter who sometimes struggles to fit in. This book really helped her to learn some of the social nuances found among young girls without me prying into her life too much. I also read it and it gave us a platform to discuss friends and the social struggles kids face. I would recommend this book to both parents and girls who have questions about friendships and how to help your kids be good people with caring hearts.

My niece is 9 and I gave this to her as one of her Christmas gifts. She loves her other books from the American Girl series and this one is no exception. She began reading it immediately and then discussing it with me. It was a big hit! And it seems very practical and useful for helping young girls navigate those early relationships with friends.

I have two daughters (8, 10) who received this book and several others from American Girls as gifts from me. I was nervous that they wouldn't like them, or look at me like I am completely crazy. Surprisingly, both girls absolutely love the books. My 10 yr old has been dealing with what I consider to be ridiculous drama at school with her group of friends. I did not have the same experience when I was in elementary school, so it has been difficult for me to relate to this issue. American Girls to the rescue!

The advice given in these books are appropriate for their age range - presented in a way that doesn't seem like a lecture. Several times recently my daughter has had a question about how to handle a situation, and before I can make a suggestion, she's looking it up in her American Girls library. I am grateful for the entire series! I recommend these books as gifts, starting with girls as young as 8 so there is time to learn about how to handle situations before getting in to them. The books make great gifts, and are wonderful to use as conversation starters with your child.

My [....] and I are really enjoying reading this book. While it is aimed, I think, at slightly older girls, We are reading it and talking about how to handle certain situations, how to start up conversations with girls you don't know, etc. I think it is a great starting point for girls who are just starting to be faced with girlie friendship dilemmas.

I ordered this book for my 7 year old niece. The American Girl books had great reviews so I picked this one. I am very pleased with this book and I will be ordering more in the future. I like this book because it is written very well and is simple for a young girl to understand about how to make friends. One example in the book that I remember is 'if you see a girl sitting alone in the lunch room, you could sit next to her. Maybe she doesn't have any friends and is hoping for someone to reach out to her.' Or 'start talking with a girl that you want to be friends with by giving her a compliment like " I think your backpack is really cool". Etc.

We are using this book in our youth program for girls ages 6-12. We have a lot of infighting and girls excluded, name-calling, your basic "mini mean girl" stuff. A school counselor is volunteering her time once a week this summer to work with the girls, with discussions and activities centered around the book.

A GREAT resource for helping girls to be confident and respectful!

Bette Middler sang about it -- You gotta have friends! American Girl will explain it all to the tween in your life: how to meet friends, keep friends, avoid arguments, and keep on having fun through it all!

This book is a must have for girls and their families. Conversations will be started, communication will grow, and happiness will abound. Now, what could be wrong with that?

This book is filled with wonderful illustrations that underscore the lively writing.

Absolutely recommended!

This is a great book if your child needs some help in understanding the lines in friendships and how to conduct them. It gently explains the dos and don'ts in a way that will appeal to younger girls.
