Emily’s New Friend

How do you meet someone new?

All it takes is a little courage, a lot of kindness, and some good manners! Emily’s New Friend provides guidance for both children and parents on the social skills necessary for building and keeping lasting friendships.

Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D and Peggy Post have teamed up with illustrator Steve Björkman for Emily’s New Friend, a colorful guide to making friends. Emily’s New Friend depicts the interactions between a young Emily and her new neighbor, Ethan. Young readers learn how a friendship grows as Emily and Ethan demonstrate sharing, thoughtfulness, manners, and cooperation in different social activities.

Emily’s New Friend is recommended for children age 5-8.
