Sam is only friends with boys. Boys are strong and tough--girls aren't. But when Ellie joins Sam's class and he's forced to get to know her, he finds out that her parents may be getting a divorce. Then Sam sees just how strong and tough a girl can be, and he makes his first real friend.
Readers will relate to Sam's feelings--and his change of heart--and the bold colors, engaging animal characters, and gentle humor are perfectly suited to the preschool audience.
