Are You My Friend? A Raymond and Sheila Story







Are You My Friend? A Raymond and Sheila Story Are You My Friend?

Also in Spanish!

Raymond Alligator is a super smart, super shy 5-year-old who feels left out when big sister Sheila has a friend over. He and his teddy bear are tighter than tight, but lately Raymond’s wondering if he needs someone else to be his friend. Making a new friend sounds like a great idea but, well, it can also be kinda scary.

Are You My Friend? is a spot-on, funny picture book sure to draw in every kid (and adult) who has ever longed to peek over the neighbor’s fence and bust out of their comfort zone. Are You My Friend? is a story for the heart and the funny bone, sure to resonate with typical 4-8 year olds, kids with special needs as well as reluctant readers. Whimsically illustrated, the story features music and sound effects with Read-It-To-Me audio narration (included in the iBook and Android, nabi tablet versions, available as a free MP3 download for the print edition).

The Raymond and Sheila series is for parents and kids to enjoy together. Included in each book is a unique Parent Guide for helping kids engage more fully in the story’s emotional content. Talking about feelings and the challenges of getting along with others builds social skills and improves parent-child communication.
