Oliver at the Window

$ 16.95
Making a friend makes all the difference. When Oliver's parents separate, Oliver must brave many new changes. He shuffles back and forth between his parents' homes. And now he goes to preschool every day. He doesn't know the kids there or his new teacher. Isolated and alone at first, Oliver slowly becomes part of the gang. Eventually, he's able to help the newest student feel welcome at school. Lion stays with Oliver everywhere he goes, giving him just the thing he needs to adjust to all the changes: courage.

This picture book follows a young child’s adjustment to a new school—and his parent’s separation—through the natural evolution of friendship and play. Of special interest to parents with children entering school and to teachers, psychologists and therapists supporting families in transition.
