My SIL messaged me the first week of school saying it was the new bedtime story every night since receiving it. She also told me that my niece’s “new best friend” told her they couldn’t be friends any more because she found other new friends. The tears of kindergarten, right? My nice said instead of being sad, she was going to do like her book said and be happy her friend was happy; she went along to play by herself.
Early lessons are hard to teach, and the social dynamics of this ever-changing world even harder. It made me happy that this book helped her keep a positive mindset in a challenging/upsetting situation. And, now, she has more new friends and received a perfect mid-quarter review score on her classroom citizenship.
I was very excited to see that the author had also written a children's version. I ordered it from Amazon the same day and had it at school on Monday. Although the illustrations look like it would appeal to very young children, older children will be able to understand the concepts and enjoy reading the book too. I shared it with a young man who was being bullied and he was moved by how the book spoke to him. I've loaned the book now to several students and see it as a tool to reach students who are isolated and/or negative. Buy it for a child you love and read it with them! Let them know that you're buying a bus ticket too :)

I read it to my two nieces, five and six and they thought it was very clever way of putting positive thoughts in children's imagination.
