Fiona's Friend
by Jill Ostrowski

What makes a good friend? Is it someone who is just like you? Or is it someone who listens to you, who laughs at your jokes, who gives good hugs, and teaches you to see the world in a different way? This is the heartwarming story of Fiona—a typically developing child—who becomes friends with Owen, a special needs child. Fiona’s Friend subtly reinforces the value of diversity and inclusion in an accessible and engaging way. Let’s celebrate the simple magic of friendship!
