Fast Friends

When a new kid joins the class, Tyson is the first to make friends.
Why? Suze loves race cars, reading and speed — just like him.

“With a play on words and a story of  friendship beyond differences, Heather M. O’Connor helps children see the importance of focusing on our commonalities which connect us rather than that which might separate us.” CanLit for LittleCanadians
