Through quizzes, fun activities, and entertaining advice, Dr. Crist’s The Survival Guide for Making and Being Friends helps kids learn and practice friendship skills. In chapters like ‘How to Handle Fights, Hurt Feelings, and Other Friendship Troubles,’ how to handle it ‘When Friendships End,’ and ‘Seven Tips for Growing Friendships,’ Crist gets to the heart of the matter in a simple, relatable way that will make kids want to read to the very end.”—Cathi Cohen, LCSW, CGP, author of Raise Your Child’s Social IQ
