Why do we need friends? How can we make friends? And what makes a good friend? This charmingly illustrated book explores the benefits of having friends, looking at different types of friendships, and what happens when friends fall out and make up. Includes helpful notes for grown-ups on talking to children about friendships, dealing with conflicts and imaginary friends.
