Norton and the Borrowing Bear (Hardcover)
A Children's Book Council of Australia Notable Book.
"Readers who have been in Norton's or the bear's shoes will emerge enlightened. A sound lesson in making friends--and setting boundaries." Kirkus Reviews
Wouldn't it be fun to have a friend living right next door to you? Well, as Norton discovers, it can certainly pose some challenges when that friend wants to borrow all your favorite things, even your special fuzzy slippers.
This is a story about setting limits and learning to accept you friends, flaws and all. It introduces readers to the important skill of boundary-setting in a funny, accessible way that will help them share and borrow without regrets.
