Making new friends doesn’t have to be scary. Every child needs to be reminded of that.

Children are oftentimes hesitant to fully embrace new experiences for fear that no one will like them. As soon as a child makes just one new friend though, they typically begin to thrive and enjoy the new experience that they were once apprehensive about.

“Wally Wuzzlemoore Makes New Friends” is a children’s book with an imaginative story line and illustrations designed and written by professional artist Tom Schinderling.

Written to resonate with both children and adults, “Wally Wuzzlemoore Makes New Friends” tells the story of a friendly monster’s quest to meet new people and decide who his friends should be after moving away from his old home in the country to a new home in the city.

“Kids are just like adults in that they are afraid to make new friends,” Schinderling said. “When I wrote ‘Wally Wuzzlemoore Makes New Friends,’ I did so with the goal that parents could read it with their children to ease their worries, prepare them for change and help them make new friends.”    

Schinderling wrote and illustrated the book to teach children that if they are kind, polite, optimistic and open to getting to know new people like Wally was, then their journey to make new friends won’t be scary.

“Making new friends doesn’t have to be scary,” Schinderling says. “Every child needs to be reminded of that.”
