A Friend for Poochi
People say Poochi is very hairy and ugly, but he really wants a friend. Read all about his adventures as he seeks to find his tribe!
Individuality, Self-Confidence, Friendship
1. Poochi likes things that other creatures don’t like (like mud and smelly things). He also looks different to the other creatures he meets. Do you think this means that Poochi should not be friends with creatures who are different to him? Why or why not?
2. Some of the creatures Poochi tries to be friends with are not very nice to Poochi. Do you think you would have been Poochi’s friend if he said hello to you? Why or why not?
3. Poochi finally finds a group of friends and is happy. Why do you think friendship can make us feel less lonely?
