Can I Join Your Club?
I was excited to read this book with my 4 year old as one of school friends has recently started to exclude children from games and be a little bit mean. The book lived up to my hopes of illustrating this behaviour, and how to deal with it, in a fun, 'non-preachy' way. Not only does my son talk about that boy differently now but he has also come home from school telling me about all the 'new friends' he's played with rather than the same three every day.
Putting aside the excellent lesson it teaches, the book is fun to read and wonderfully illustrated. We've been reading it every night for about two weeks and it hasn't made me lose my mind!!
