How to Be a Friend
Sandy Gingras evokes how good things can be when you and your environment are in happy agreement. --Stephen Dunn, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet
''Friendship is an act of grace. Whether it's a momentary gesture, a presence over a period of time or a long journey through life, a friendship changes us -- shifts our course, nudges our thinking, careens us into joy. This charming and illustrated gift book is a thank you to friends and acts of friendship everywhere -- for the way they brighten the world and steer our lives more toward heart.'' --[excerpt from the book]
