Understanding Friendship "Wonderfully sensitive and insightful book for children. I will recommend it to all"
"My First Best Friend is a treat for all bedtime story readers and their young listeners. A little boy named Evan tells his true story in rhythmic rhyme about how Snickers, his family dog, he and became the very best of friends. Children will laugh and "ewww" at Evan and Snick's experiences and may even ask for a Snickers of their own. This charming little book is about the gift of friendship and the trust and sharing and love that come with it. My First Best Friend is, in fact, a gift from author Sharon Daniels to Evan, her first grandson, and happily, she's sharing it with all of us!"
