Publisher's Description

It s a joy to have all kinds of friends.


Overview


Where is it written that friends have to be carbon copies of us? When we were children the predominant factor in choosing friends was geographical location. Whoever lived nearby was a potential friend. But as we grew up, our worlds became larger. When we reached adulthood, we found we could become friends with people of different cultures and ages. Can we learn from those who are older than we are? Do we have anything to offer those who are younger than we are? Can we be friends with those who don t share our beliefs? This study will look at what these friendships can offer.
