The Someone New
One morning, Jitterbug woke up with a quiver in her tummy. She knew something was new, and she didn’t like change. Jitterbug loved everything in order and everything in its place. After meeting with all her friends in the forest, Jitterbug still couldn’t figure out what was different. Then, she noticed it: a shape that was very round, very soft, and, most of all, very new. Will Jitterbug be able to open her heart to Pudding the snail, or will she turn this new friend away?
In a story about accepting change, The Someone New will warm your hearts with an inspiring view on friendship. Jill Twiss delivers a story with a strong message that sparks discussion, while also highlighting the importance of overcoming fears and accepting new friends. With adorable illustrations that practically leap off the pages with cuteness, EG Keller captures a range of emotion in each of the character’s expressions that tell a story all their own. With names like Pudding, Duffles, Nudge Toast, and Geezer, readers will not be able to help but fall in love, while learning the power of acceptance and kindness.
