My new best friend comforts me when I feel sad, encourages me when I feel frustrated, and is happy for me when I'm having fun.

When people we care about are having a hard time, we usually treat them with kindness and understanding—yet when we are the ones having a hard time, we are often quick to be unkind. We may get angry and impatient with ourselves, even calling ourselves nasty names.

My New Best Friend invites children to break free of this pattern of “inner bullying,” helping them treat themselves with kindness and understanding—laying the groundwork for emotional resilience, self-compassion, and positive self-esteem.

Reviews:

“This is an absolutely delightful book that perfectly delivers the message of self-compassion in a way that is fun and easy to understand for kids. Parents who buy this book for their children will be giving them a gift to last a lifetime!”
—Kristin Neff, Ph.D, author of Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself

“Sara Marlowe’s wonderful new book teaches children resilience by showing them how to be their own best friend. It belongs in every child’s bookshelf!”
— Susan Kaiser Greenland, author of The Mindful Child and co-founder of Inner Kids

“My New Best Friend is my new favorite book. It teaches self-compassion in such an engaging, fun, beautiful way. This is a wise and heart felt book.”
— Daniel Rechtschaffen, author of The Way of Mindful Education
