When My Friend Smiles in English and Filipino Children's Book by Robyn Chua Rodriguez
It's easy to make friends with those who are most like us. When we notice differences, can we embrace them and choose kindness? Can we look beyond what we perceive as other's limitations so that we can see their strength and beauty?
This story shows us how to treat each other's differences with respect rather than judgment. At the end of the day, all of us - no matter how alike or different - want the same thing: We all want to smile, to be understood, and to feel loved.
Join Gail and Pablo as they go on their Be-A-Buddy Trip to meet new friends.
