Book Review - Will You be My Friend?
In wake of cyber-bullying, bullying in schools and unnecessary violence, Kim Heaton Ramsay was inspired to educate young children about the differences they see in people.
In Ramsay’s new book, Will You be My Friend?, she provides a fun, yet educational children’s book for every family’s bookshelf. Preaching tolerance, this book uses colorful illustrations to teach children about acceptance of the physical, cultural and religious differences they see in friends and schoolmates.
Using Marley Mouse, Ramsay depicts the mouse’s journey of making friends with animals of all shapes, sizes and colors. Will You be My Friend? is an anti-bullying book that is a necessity in the classroom and family room.
My Take on the Book
This was a well written book that truly gets at the crux of bullying in today's society. As a father I really enjoyed how the book opened up a dialogue with my girls about some topics that we do not always talk about, but that we should be talking about because they deal with it daily at school. The images within the book were inviting and the message was strong. I applaud the author for sharing a message like this with all kids and all families!
