How to Be… a Friend
Published: 2023 by Walker Books Australia
Level: Primary Years (3-5)
When Laura's mum has to have a short trip to hospital, she comes to stay with Hazel's family. There's already been a change at home since Hazel's friend and neighbour Veronica moved and new neighbours moved in, and things aren't quite the same. It's a busy time, as Hazel and Laura have to rehearse for the school play, help find a missing cat, and learn how to navigate the ups and downs of friendship through self-doubt, secrets, knowing when to help, and also knowing when to give a friend some space... and, of course, and the fun in between!
