My New Friend: A Brief Synopsis
Written from a child’s perspective, young readers and listeners can step into the main character’s shoes and discover that being in the company of a nanny or babysitter is a chance to make a new friend.
The story follows a small fox whose parents have to call upon a nanny to watch their child for a few hours. Meeting a “new friend” can be a daunting experience for children of any age. But it can also be a chance to learn new things and share in fun experiences together. And most importantly, when mom and dad have to leave for a little while, they always come back.
Beautifully illustrated by Arabage N. Priyadarshani, the friendly family of foxes is designed to delight young readers of all ages. The book carries a happy, positive vibe that might even make your little ones look forward to the next time their new friend will visit.
