Fantastic Lesson for Children! Making Friends is an Art! is my absolute favorite book about friendship. The main lesson of this book is that To have good friends, you need to be a good friend. The author also points out that "you can't expect the other colors to like you if you don't like yourself." The main character learns that he doesn't have friends because he never laughs, always puts other down, frowns complains, disagrees, etc. --Heather, blogger @ schoolcounselingconnections.com

Author: Julia Cook (a former US teacher and school counsellor) teaches children that everyone is different, but can have the same assets and opportunities as everyone else if they change some small characteristics. This book is in story format but the bullet points that children need to learn about are in rhyme so it's easier for them to understand and remember.
Brown is a pencil who feels left out, feels unloved and in turn is a loner, bossy, rude at times, often frowns and struggles to smile, He doesn't feel he fits in with the other pencils and often looks in on the other pencils having fun from the outside, he sees good qualities in the others and that they are liked but he doesn't understand why the others don't play with him.
Brown soon realises in order to make friends he has to learn to smile, listen, accept and not dominate a game with his agenda or opinion. he starts to understand that things are not going to be exactly as he wants them to be all the time but realises that everyone feels the sad and lonely sometimes in their life, they just learn to deal with it in a different way.
The books from Julia cook are often aimed at young children and those with special educational needs. they are a good reference tool and are humorous to the child and often the adult.
The books my child owns and loves are:
Making friends is an art!
It's hard to be a Verb ( very Funny and aimed at children with ADHD)
My mouth is a volcano! ( for those little interrupters)
the worst day of my life Ever! ( about listening, understanding rules and following instructions)
I'm sorry I Forgot! ( Choices excuses and consequences) .
After buying these very humorous books I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the authors books as all morals are taught with humour and Rhyme, the aren't taught in a middle class english do as you are told way. My child loves to re-read these books and loves them read to him reiterating the messages behind the stories.
