The Friend I Need: Being Kind & Caring to Myself

by Gabi Garcia

Other authorsMiranda Rivadeneira (Illustrator)
Paperback, 2020



It’s tough being a kid sometimes.

The pressures they feel are real. Unfortunately, so is the negative self-talk that can sometimes follow when children don’t get things right the first time (or the fifth) or when emotions are strong. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Most children have probably spent time in school or at home learning how to be good friends to others, but what about learning to be good friends to themselves?

The Friend I Need helps children understand that the same qualities they look for in a friend— kindness, support, understanding, they can offer to themselves. The kid-friendly strategies and activities included help bring the concepts to life.

This is a wonderful addition to your home or school social-emotional library to help nurture your child’s growth mindset, resilience, and well-being!
