This adorable children’s tale is not just a picture book with cute characters. Squish Rabbit’s simple wisdom will withstand the test of time.

Being little has its difficulties, but being alone is even harder. We journey with Squish as he learns how to make friends.

What do you do when you are too small to join in adult conversations? How do you get by when you are too short to catch a flying balloon? Made up friends don’t do a lot and trees can’t play by the rules. When things get out of control, how do you make it all STOP?

Squish is irresistible. Simple graphics keep the story rolling for little ones, while adults will enjoy the unspoken humour cleverly depicted body language. These same qualities are the perfect starting point for teaching nonverbal cues to preschoolers: a perfect pre-kinder introduction to making friends.
