“At some point in our lives most of us have someone we call our bff (best friend forever.) But how long does forever really last? As we grow older, what happens to our bff? Perhaps some friends are just that: bff. Perhaps other friendships last for only a time.
In Author Kelly Hashway’s short story for children (and adults who are still children at heart), THE IMAGINARY FRIEND, Samantha and Tracy once were bff. Tracy has changed though and now she’s hanging out with girls from school and doesn‘t even act like she sees Samantha. Samantha is happy for Tracy; Samantha also misses her. Then Jessica, a strange girl Samantha has never seen before, enters Sam’s life and tells Sam she’s an “imaginary friend.” Jessica takes Sam to the Land of Imagination, where imaginary friends live while waiting for their next child to befriend. What follows is a lovely story about what happens when your friend no longer needs you.
THE IMAGINARY FRIEND would make a wonderful story to read in elementary school classrooms, where many children struggle with friendships. After meeting Kelly Hashway’s delightful characters, a child or two might even find an imaginary friend of their own. This story would make a great addition to your eBook library. Happy Reading.
