K-Gr 3-Using the acronym CAPS-Compliment, Ask questions, be Positive, and Smile-Inwald offers youngsters advice for making friends, even when things don't always go right. Acknowledging the hurt that accompanies rejection, she encourages children to keep trying in positive ways, giving examples via both the text and the full-color, pen-and-watercolor cartoons. While these practical tips are certainly valid, the inane verse becomes tedious and weakens the book. For those who can get past the presentation, the message is a worthy one that could prove useful for counseling and bibliotheraphy.-Claudia Cooper, Ft. Stockton Independent School District, TX
