New Frontier, 2018. ISBN 9781925594157
(Age: 3+) Recommended. Themes: Friendship, Difference. "Lucia is creative, and Lawrence loves numbers. Can they find a middle ground and stay friends?" (Publisher)
This is a book about friendship. Friends can be unpredictable and not always act like you want but true friends are there for you when you need them most. Friends don't have to be the same and like everything in the same way; they just have to support each other to bring out their best.
This book highlights that we each have our strengths and when we put our strengths together with our friends we can achieve anything.
The illustrations in this book are clear and support the story being told.
This is a simple story showing that it doesn't matter how different two people are, they can still become friends.
I recommend this book for 3+.
