MY FRIENDS. DIVERSITY
The First Readings series helps children acquire the habit of reading in their early childhood. It is in this stage of life when children start to discover and enjoy written words; it is thus the perfect moment for them to become good readers. This series achieves that aim by stimulating childrens curiosity about language by means of readings full of textual and visual information, along with activities to be done before, while and after the reading.
The characters in My Friends are children of different races, but diversity goes beyond that. We may be boys and girls, our names and the languages we speak are different, we may live in big cities or in small villages or even in different countries, we eat different kinds of food and what we like is not always the same. There is such a variety of cultures But, most importantly, we are all citizens of the same planet, and we can all be friends.
