Book Review: Alfie Gives a Hand

Rating: ★★★★★

Another Alfie story about Alfie’s first invitation to a birthday party.  He is frightened to be away from his mother and sister, and brings along his favorite blanket; but in the course of the party, the badly-behaved birthday boy torments another child and Alfie has to choose between comforting the frightened child and holding on to his own security blanket.  A wonderful, child-size look at putting others’ needs before one’s own.
