Gr 4-7-Best friends can be forever, of differentages and sizes, live far away from one another, have learning differences, be
of the opposite sex, or even be an animal. These 11 profiles, presented in first-person accounts by the young people involved, reveal the positive and negative aspects of real-life best pals and show how important these relationships are to preteens and adolescents. Problems, arguments, and disagreements are shown to be a normal part of interpersonal relationships. The second part of the book offers positive advice for making and keeping friends and suggests activities-secret codes, scrapbooks, letter writing, parties, and
crafts projects-to share.
