Friendships and community are very important for the healthy social, psychological, and emotional development of young children. In this fun and accessible activity book, Deborah Plummer deploys over thirty years of expertise for parents, teachers, and therapists to facilitate healthy friendships between children. This activity book explores concepts around child friendships, community, and being part of a group whilst also including sections on cooperation, negotiation, and conflict resolution.

This book is one of a series based on the use of imagination (I), mindful play (MP) and creative thinking (CT) to enhance social, psychological and emotional wellbeing and resilience in children. The accompanying ebook Using Imagination, Mindful Play and Creative Thinking to Support Wellbeing and Resilience in Children describes the theory and approach behind how these activities can significantly influence children’s perceptions of themselves and the world.

A fantastic resource that will help young children to grow morally, socially and spiritually through simple and enjoyable group games. The 'Talk About' sections and Activity Sheets are a powerful and adaptable learning tool, helping youngsters to reflect on themselves and their impact on others after each game. I'd recommend this for schools, community groups and clubs.
