Our relationship with ourselves and others forms the basis of our sense of wellbeing. Learning to develop and maintain connections and friendships is an essential skill that we begin to explore in the early years.  


This is series that includes practical information - such as a step-by-step guide on how to make a friend, conflict resolution, diversity, inclusion, managing emotions, and being kind to yourself and others. Simple single sentence pages with images help to explain complex friendship scenarios easily.


In this book, we discover friendship by starting with the most important relationship we will ever have - the one with ourselves! By practising self-care and positive self-talk, we develop a sense of wellbeing and better able to be kind and compassionate with others.


We explore friendship scenarios such as inviting others to play, sharing, and waiting for turns, to begin to build our friendship skill repertoire.  


Making friends is a life skill with its foundations in the first interactions between parent and child. As they develop, children are encouraged to build the social skills for making friends through their interactions with other children and adults. My Friends explores feelings, social situations and the language children might use as they develop understandings. This book is a great resource at any time to explore the concept of friends, relationships, and belonging and supports the Early Years Learning Framework.


Friendship can take many forms, between family members, across diverse cultures and abilities. This book pictures them all for children to be able to relate to many examples of inclusion.
