"Friends Always is a wonderful resource for parents, caregivers and teachers involved in helping children develop social skills. While it is obviously a story with a purpose, the charming illustrations by author/illustrator Tanja Wenisch and lists of wonderful things children can enjoy with their friends also make this story an entertaining one for young readers."--Kids' Book Review
