Quick thoughts on this book:
Back in October, I was luck enough to be able to do a cover reveal for WE ARE (NOT) FRIENDS. I am excited that soon everyone will get a chance to read this wonderful new book from Anna Kang and Christopher Weyant.
Our favorite furry friends are back. This time they have a new friend, but just like all new relationships there can be growing pains. Sometimes a little jealousy and some frustration and feelings of being left out. Kang and Weyant are masters are capturing the feelings of young children and doing it in a manner that rings true.
As a teacher of preschool and primary age students, I was always surprised at how young children were when they began claiming other children as “their friend” (not yours) and leaving out other peers. Yet, it is important to help children learn how to navigate those relationships and to find out how they can functioning as a group of friends instead of a pair of friends.
Fans of the series will love this new book. It will be a hit as a read aloud and one that will be requested for multiple reads.
Look for a copy of WE ARE (NOT) FRIENDS at your local bookstore or public library.
