Ever had your kids say “she’s my friend, you can’t play with her?” I think this happens so much in first grade. Children find a friend and then try to control who that friend plays with. As I was reading a few books from the library, I came across this book My Friend Fred by Hiawyn Oram.
It is a great story about a little girl and her dog and how she tries to keep her dog from playing with anyone else but her. I am going to use this book when I start to see my first graders not sharing their friends.
It’s such a cute book and will really hit home with the kids.
