#Review of Good Friends Are Hard to Shake by Kristen Maxwell, Kevin Sabino, Kristen Marie @OrendaPress @_AwesomeAnnie

 
 
Why would anyone want to ditch their friends?

Iggy is an introverted inkapus and while he loves his new friends, sometimes he just needs a little break--something they don't seem to understand. The more Iggy tries to be alone, the more they chase him. It's all fun and games--until Iggy nearly loses his ink.

The quintessential Iggy book, this fun and sometimes ironic story surfaces some of the main communication differences between introverts and extroverts--showing how easily the two personality types can misunderstand each other.

For parents and educators: Recent research shows introverted children are often underrepresented in today's social sphere. This book gives them a character they can relate to, while also helping introverted and extroverted children understand the differences between the two personality types.





As a young child, author Kristen Maxwell struggled with her own introverted identity. She felt awkward and geeky and longed to be like the more charismatic kids. This took her on a journey of epic fails and embarrassment as she tried to be someone other than she was. She finally figured out a formula that worked, despite all of her social disadvantages, and the fakery began and lasted for years. Now a highly adapted introvert, she finds fitting in a little easier-but wishes she'd never had to change to be understood. Her hope is that Iggy, the introverted inkapus, will bring a sense of belonging to introverted children who are struggling with their own identity and show extroverted children how to identify and communicate with their quieter counterparts.

AKA 4 stars (I was surprised it wasnt 19090 stars) 


This book gives you a great over view on what it means to be an  introverted and extroverted child.  Awesome Annie enjoyed seeing how Iggy dealt with his new friends.  This book was very colorful and the only thing we didn't like about it some of the pictures were cut off.  We think it would have been better if the pictures would have been on each page with the words added vs. all the words being on a white background.
