“Paula and Maggie are best friends until Paula starts playing with some new friends instead, but when her new playmates turn on her, it’s Maggie who rushes to Paula’s defense”
This is a great book about friendship. It is more important to be a good friend than to be liked by the popular kids.
Hannah E. Harrison’s illustrations are always so detailed and wonderfully colorful and expressive and this book is no exception. This books reminds us that participating in bullying may make you feel part of the in-crowd initially, but bullies are rarely nice for long, even to their “friends,” and it’s far better to be true to our true friends from the get-go. The message is fantastic, and I really appreciated the little example of forgiveness included as well.
