Buy – What Friends Do Best
Winston learns what friends do best…they offer help and really care when something goes wrong. They don’t blame or buy into drama. They encourage success and their kindness and enthusiasm helps worries to be forgotten.
Everyone needs a helping hand sometimes and asking for help is not Winston’s strong point.
Everyone agrees Winston is super good at building things, but when he starts on a really big project things start to go wrong.
Ralph and Alice offer their assistance but the independent Winston wants to do it all himself.
This fast paced story is masterfully written with problems, solutions and outcomes all linking together quickly. Children will enjoy the clarity and continuity of this story.
…some of the pieces were hard to find. “Can I help?” asked Alice. “I’m good at finding things.” “It’s all right”, said Winston. “I can do it myself.” But some of the pieces were so tiny that Winston couldn’t find them at all.
After a week with no sign of Winston, the friends go over to find out if he’s alright. Winston is in meltdown and nothing has been built!
Doing what friends do best, Alice and Ralph get things moving. Before he knows it, Winston has forgotten his problems and has joined his friends who are building his great big rocket!
The pictures are bright and engaging with wonderful details for children to investigate.
Creative kids will love Winston’s building plan, which cleverly shows diagrams of fins and fixings, nozzles and hatches, different passenger weights, measurements, equations and even distances to destinations in space.
Filled with positive messages this picture book has a triumphant conclusion. Winston thanks his friends…after all, helping out is what friends do best!Buy – What Friends Do Best
