      These children's books have best friend issues that run the gamut from The Big Fight to adjusting to the ups and downs of life's interruptions whether that is a tsunami to puberty. Just like in real life. I hope these books help to illustrate to your children who may be going through ups and downs with their friendships that healthy friendships have ebbs and flows.
