MEESHA MAKES FRIENDS SUMMARY

Meesha loves to make things. She can make pictures out of sounds and numbers. But there is one thing that Meesha cannot make- friends. She does not know what to do or to say with other children. Sometimes, she does the wrong thing in thinking that it is the correct way to play. 

 

Eventually, she problem solves by making her own friends out of materials and fabric. One day, a little boy sees her making these dolls. He wants to make his friends, too! When they create a town together, he encourages Meesha to show it to another group of children. Join Meesha on her journey of friendship, problem solving, and navigating social skills!
