From the Publisher

B.E.S. A Big Hug series offers a gentle and direct approach to the emotional issues that children face. Written by a clinical child psychologist, these books encourage youngsters to share and discuss tough topics with family and friends. Friendship is Like A Seesaw compares friendship to the classic playground ride--there are ups and downs, but in the end it's all about balance.

"Friendship is like a seesaw.
Sometimes you might feel up in the air
when your friend feels low.
Other times you might feel down,
when your friend is up.
When things are balanced, both friends are happy."

Endearing illustrations and gentle text explore friends at their best--sharing, laughing, and playing together--as well as friends who sometimes say hurtful things, leave others out, or get a bit bossy. The authors go on to discuss what we can do to rebalance and fix our friendships, like talking about our feelings, looking at our own friendship skills, or taking a break. A timeless lesson that older children and even adults can appreciate.

Full-Text Reviews
Horn Book Guide (Spring 2015)
In Friendship, animals illustrate a narrative describing the general ups and downs of friendship. In Life, animals model ways to cope when life "leaves the body" of a loved one. That these are overly purposeful self-help books for kids is mostly masked by the warm tone and affecting watercolors: it's hard not to feel compassion for a big-eyed porcupine excluded from a game. [Review covers these titles: Friendship Is like a Seesaw and Life Is like the Wind.]
