Cami and Pete
About the Book
Cami is a shy little boy who has just started school. So far, due to his shyness, he hasn’t made any friends. It’s not that he doesn’t want friends. He does, but he’s just too nervous! One day, he makes a wish. Imagine his incredible excitement when the wish comes true—just not quite in the way little Cami guessed. Within a moment of Cami making his wish, up jumps a magical frog whose name is Pete. Unlike other frogs, Pete can talk, and the two become best friends. They get themselves into a little bit of trouble—not because they were naughty—but because they were trying to help! Thankfully, Cami’s mom sees the humor in it all and doesn’t get angry with her son and his new best pal. Many young children are shy and have difficulty making friends, so they will understand what Cami is going through. Plus, it’s a valuable lesson to be learned that when we’re kind to others, we’ll find friends all around.
