The golden answer to all that we seek, resides eternally

in the Golden Rule.


Now a beautiful book for readers 3-8 – and hearts of all ages – explores its power in The Golden Friendship. This bright, colorfully illustrated story by New Hampshire writer and artist Lauren Chuslo-Shur follows the bumps that test the friendship between a Brazilian muriqui monkey and red-eyed tree frog and reveals the rewarding freedoms that acceptance and understanding always bring.

The story is supplemented with a list of thoughtful questions to maximize teachable moments about character and consequences, lively facts about the Brazilian rainforest and its animals, and instructions for how to craft the tissue-paper materials used to create the book’s delightful illustrations. 5withfurrilr
