Boeholt’s Friendship Tales from the Farm series a must for children and their caregivers, creating delightful moments of interactive storytelling that will enrich any learning environment.
The kiddos enjoy me reading this book day after day. What a great (and somewhat long) story to teach the kids about kindness. And hopefully when you are kind to others, they come back to you with kindness, especially when in need.
It was so sad to read that the farmer was going to just throw Burton away and not try to fix him. Instead all the animals that he had helped, gathered together and helped him stay guarding the fields…and even created a companion!
