Who Needs Friends?
The story of a little owl who’s ready to make his first friends—but it’s going to take some practice!
Little Merlin the owl is so eager to make friends and tell them all about himself, that he neglects to think about what they want. After a few false starts with no success, he decides he will give up—after all, who really needs friends? Fortunately, though, Merlin then meets someone who is good at making friends. Who shows him that friendship is a fun give-and-take. Young children experiencing the ups and downs of first friendships will relate to Merlin’s plight and enjoy his funny friend-making tips—and even grown-ups will appreciate the gentle reminders to “share your worms” and “listen as much as you squawk!”
