It is true that most of us tend to be friends with those we have things in common with. But what if you become friends with someone who is much different than you? Do you think it’s possible?
In her book Tobiath and the Birdy, author R. J. Brenner tells the tale of two very different creatures—a mighty lion and a small bird—who unexpectedly meet. Although it isn’t easy, and despite their quarrels, they learn from each other and develop a lasting friendship. Tobiath and the Birdy teaches children to understand the importance of kindness and to be unselfish with others. You never know who might become an important friend.
