I found the music lively, engaging and mostly ‘catchy’. I enjoyed the rhyming story lines. The story provides opportunities for discussion about different social behaviours associated with friendships – inclusiveness, cooperation, helping others, expressing feelings, negotiation, misunderstandings, and more. These scenarios can be played separately or in sequence for children to discuss. The inclusion of meditation and relaxation music provides a gentle way to end the session and could be used independently of the story.
