Item description for Friends Learn about Tobin by Diane Murrell...
Overview Tobin the train is a bit different from his friends, but they soon get used to his differences and learn how to stop him from being unhappy.
Tobin's friends meet him halfway! In Diane Murrell's first book, Tobin Learns to Make Friends, Tobin made special changes in himself in order to be friendly toward his playmates. Now, Tobin's friends try to understand where he is coming from. The charming trains learn that a little extra kindness can put them all on the same "track." Parents and teachers will find both books useful in teaching mutual understanding. Friends Learn About Tobin shows how Tobin's friends accept and appreciate his differences, such as discomfort with change, repetitious behavior, a knack for numbers, a photographic memory, literal interpretation of words, and sensitivity to noises and crowds.

GREAT BOOK! Jul 29, 2008
Great learning tool for children! Important lessons for ALL to learn, such as, we can have differences that are NOT on the outside, but on the inside. Different ways we react to situations. How friends should treat each other. One line reads: "Friends help friends whether they are the same or not". Simple, but often UNDER emphasized. Helps kids begin to understand the semantics and idioms in our language. I truly appreciated the lessons offered by this story. Also, well made and good paper quality. Hope this helps. This was a really good purchase for my family.
