    Lovely book to help with anxiety about starting or returning to school It describes the physical feelings of being anxious, suggests breathing, and then the little girl begins to see that her new class is an opportunity to make new friends It s also good that the book doesn t focus on finding one best friend but on making different types of friends, i.e someone to be silly with, someone to laugh with, someone who s a good talker, etc.Miss 4 and I like to explore different books and authors at Lovely book to help with anxiety about starting or returning to school It describes the physical feelings of being anxious, suggests breathing, and then the little girl begins to see that her new class is an opportunity to make new friends It s also good that the book doesn t focus on finding one best friend but on making different types of friends, i.e someone to be silly with, someone to laugh with, someone who s a good talker, etc.Miss 4 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or themes We try to get different ones out every week or so it s fun for both of us to have the variety and to look at a mix of new favourite authors

    Picture perfect, illustrations are beautiful from Jonathan Bentley and the words by Andrew Daddo about a girl getting to the new school year and new class with none of her old friends should comfort every mum or dad with young kids nervous about school Pre school perfect

    A wonderful book to read with young school kids returning to school I loved how positive the book is and creates a sense of excitement from the initial anxiety.

    Andrew Daddo and Jonathan Bentley have teamed up again to deliver yet another outstanding picture book just in time for those back to school feels and old friends new friends blues.In Old Friends, New Friends, a young child embarks on what I suspect is her second year of primary school She s excited about going back to school and seeing all her best friends from last year only to walk into her new classroom and discover that none of her friends are in the same class as her this year.For a young Andrew Daddo and Jonathan Bentley have teamed up again to deliver yet another outstanding picture book just in time for those back to school feels and old friends new friends blues.In Old Friends, New Friends, a young child embarks on what I suspect is her second year of primary school She s excited about going back to school and seeing all her best friends from last year only to walk into her new classroom and discover that none of her friends are in the same class as her this year.For a young child, this is one of the most troubling discoveries and one that has the potential to cloud their perception of school In Old Friends, New Friends, Daddo and Bentley have weaved the perfect story to give children and adults alike a fantastic arsenal of tools and coping mechanisms to not only overcome these problematic realisations, but to embrace change and make new friends.What I think I love the most about this delightful picture book is the way in which Daddo and Bentley have clearly thought out every aspect of the book from story, to pacing, to coping mechanisms to humour in both the text and illustrations, nothing has been forgotten Through the main character, Daddo and Bentley walk the reader through a check list of ideas for the types of new friends that she might discover and need in this new environment I ll need a cheer me up friend Someone a lot smiley and happy Hopefully with a wam, dry hand to hold in line A sporty Ninja would do the trick, we could race into adventures together For sure, I ll want a funny bunny to make me laugh and giggle How about a friend to sit quietly with We could share our favourite books and fun little secrets The possibilities and opportunities presented by Daddo text s and Bentley s illustrations are endless Not only in terms of the types of friends listed above, but it clearly demonstrates everyone s own unique appeal and diversity, while also subtly suggesting that you can havethan one or two key core friends.While Daddo s text is clear and child like in expression, Bentley s illustrations are beautiful and realistic portrayals set against stark white backgrounds, allowing both text and image to remain the focus of the narrative and reader s attention.All in all, Old Friends, New Friends is a fantastic picture book that is ideal for children starting school for the first time, or moving up in classes It s a brilliant resource for identifying different personalities and interests, learning to accept each other and how to cope with change It s also a lot of fun and really cute concept pulled off incredibly well by the dynamic duo of Daddo and Bentley.This review was originally posted at The Never Ending Bookshelf on the 2nd February 2019 and can be found here
