'Billy Makes a New Friend!' by Ayala Saar, Illustrated by Kathleen Sue L. Mallari

This story is about sharing and making new friends. Billy is a little boy who loves his toys and in particular his trains. He wants somebody to play with. However, how he can he makes friends if he does not know how to share?

Take a sneak peek inside the book:
One day, his mother's friend and her little boy Chris came over. Mom and her friend had coffee and talked. Billy took Chris into his room to play, but Billy did not want to share his toys; he gave Chris an old ball to play with. 

As the afternoon wore on, Billy did not feel good about what he had done. After Chris and his mother went home, Billy talked to his mother about sharing his toys. A week later the two families meet again and Chris invites Billy to play. Billy sees Chris' terrific train and they both enjoy playing with it. In that gesture, Billy and Chris become friends who can share. 

This colorful book is excellent as a bedtime story for early learners and beginning readers.

"The Art Of Sharing"…. The author, Ayala Saar, has written an important and fun book for children.

The illustrations by Kathleen Sue L. Millari, are beautiful, vibrant and colorful, and they depict the adventures of Billy and Chris. Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. The children may discuss all of their adventures in sharing, and the feelings they have when they do not want to share. The lessons learned are important for everyone. An important book for any child."……
