The Loveliest Books About Friendship

Jan 18, 2022

Friendships are an opportunity for invaluable companionship — and for adventure, too! Books about the positive power of friendship can teach young children important social-emotional skills that will benefit them for years to come. Building friendships strengthens empathy, kindness, and builds confidence, all of which are invaluable lifelong skills! 

For instance, the sweet book A Friend for Dragon is a delightfully whimsical story about a lonely dragon searching for (and finding!) the perfect friend for him. Meanwhile, titles like Princess Truly #4: I Am a Good Friend explore all of the amazing and fun things friends can to together, from building a clubhouse to helping each other when someone is in need.
