Your students will love this story of friendship and how it works through ups and downs. Porcupine and Badger have always been the best of friends, so when Porcupine finds some yarn in the woods, she makes a present for Badger. And when Badger finds yarn, she makes a present for Porcupine. The only problem? It’s the same yarn―and to finish the gift, they each must unravel the other’s creation. An act of kindness turns into a fierce standoff as the friendship frays―can Porcupine and Badger set aside their differences and knit themselves back together? Find out in A Friendship Yarn by Lisa Moser.
