The Buddy Bench

Cover: 'The Buddy Bench'

Staff Review: "The Buddy Bench" by Patty Brozo


Has there ever been a time where you have felt left out or forgotten in group activities, such as recess? This book focuses on that issue. For a variety of reasons, some of the kids at this school feel left out when it comes to recess. They watch as their classmates play with kites or throw a ball, having fun without them. The students who are watching just want to be included and make friends. The solution is the buddy bench. 

This story is a wonderful introduction to inclusion of all people and making friends.

Audience: children | Genre: fiction, picture book
