Will I Have a Friend?

(1967)
(The first book in the First-Grade Friends series)
A Picture Book by

 
Jim is worried on the first day of school. His anxious question, Will I have a friend at school? gains momentum throughout the day, as everyone in class is busy with their friends and activities. Jim gazes around helplessly When Paul shares his toy car with Jim, and Jim promises to bring his toy gas pump to school the following day a friendship easily takes root. As Jim bounces home with his dad at the end of the day, he proudly declares, I have a friend at school. Miriam Cohen's story highlights a common fear that children face when they leave the safe and familiar terrain of home and begin social interaction at school. Accomplished watercolorist Ronald Himler makes the characters and their situations believable. The previously published edition of Will I Have a Friend? won the Library of Congress Children's Book of the Year Award.
