All my friends ISBN: 9781870516822
Blake, Jo and Lobel, Gill
Published by Tamarind, 2006
Keisha has tummy aches and doesn't want to go to school. It's apparent that she has had to move to a new school and is missing her old friends and her teacher with 'her lovely smiley face'. The finding of a tiny doll in the garden is a help when Keisha takes it to school the next day, but she still feels left out and alone. When the doll goes missing, she discovers that her new classmates want to be friends after all, and the settling-in process has begun. A decidedly multi-cultural classroom; Keisha is black, as is the teacher. Realistic and endearing illustrations.
Age: 6+
