Editorial Reviews

Review

"A delightfully reassuring tale for any child who is going to a new school or having difficulty making friends." -- Jenny Vanderbruele-Retired Special Education Teacher

"We're moving tomorrow and the timing of your book couldn't be better. I read it with my two children, and it made them feel more comfortable talking about our move. I'm donating a copy to our children's school when we move in." -- Patti-Parent

"What's the Recipe for Friends? is a wonderful book for elementary children seeking to meet new friends. The main character, Freddy, accurately depicts the world of a child forced to make new friends when his family moves. The story unfolds in a humorous and caring manner as Freddy's mother imparts her wisdom and encouragement through her own recipe. Author Greg Williamson demonstrates an uncanny ability to understand and communicate with children through his mastery storytelling. I highly recommend this book to young children and their parents looking for peer relationship advice. It is also an excellent resource for professionals working with children." -- Julie Magulak-School Social Worker-Bloomfield Hills, MI

From the Back Cover

This book is just what children need. In the hustle and bustle of today's nomadic families, the children's needs and feelings sometimes get lost in the shuffle. Adults sometimes forget the fears that children have about making new friends, and I think this book helps solve some of those fears and questions through a brilliant use of simplicity...Just follow the RECIPE! The colorful illustrations catch the readers eye as the story moves you through the process of a young boy and his frog following the "recipe for friends!" I love this book and my children have a ball looking at the pictures over and over again.

Not only is the thought process of this book excellent. The drawings are absolutely phenomenal! This is must reading for every child who is moving and must find the recipe for making friends and it is must reading for every child who comes in contact with "new" kids. It helps them realize what that child is going through

This is a wonderful book about making friends. It is about a kid who has moved to a new school, and doesn't have any friends yet. His mom tells him that she knows the recipe for making friends: be nice, and thoughtful, and so on. By the end of the first week, the child has made a new friend. The recipe worked!
Good for ages 4 and up!
