When I was in school (yes, way back in the day) me and my friends would fill notebooks with our friends' names and then pass them around. We'd write comments in the notebook about what we thought of each friend. I still have most of the notebooks that I started, tucked away in my cedar chest.
The Friendship Book is along the same concept, except in a hardcover book and with a better format. Designed for kids aged 6 - 12, this book encourages children to gather and write about the moments and relationships that mark their younger years. There is a section for the owner of the book to write their information in and the remaining sections are to be passed to the owner's friends to write in. Each writing prompt is in English and Spanish. Personal likes, special messages, photos, and other information is gathered from each person.
My youngest step-daughter, Emma, really likes her Friendship Book. She's filled out her own information and has taken it to school for her friends to fill out. She says that her friends really like the book too and thought that filling it out was fun. I am fond of the beautiful illustrations that depict kids doing different things. I also appreciate that this book celebrates all that is positive. It's a good way for friends to get to know about each other, without any abasement.
