Billy Makes A New Friend is your typical teaching book for kids between the ages of 4-8. This book teaches about feelings a child might not understand when they refuse to share their toys or when they do share their toys. The book rhymes nicely so your kindergarten-3rd grader will be able to read it with ease. The illustrations flow nicely with the story and with simple drawings that tell the story as well as the words.
I read this book to my 4 and 6 year old daughters who said the book was good but she shares her toys all the time with her friends. Than we talked about her sharing with her sister and maybe it would make her feel happier if she shared with her toys. She nicely informed me that sharing with friends is totally different than sharing with your younger sister.
The story does have an older brother who shares as well but that went over my daughter's head or she simply ignored that part of the story.
The author writes in simple terms so your kindergarten would be able to read and follow along or your 3rd grader is able to read it to his younger or her younger siblings.
A perfectly simple book for your children to understand the importance of sharing and you will be sharing the importance of reading with them.
