Fans of King & Kayla and Charlie & Mouse will love this delightful beginning chapter book series that celebrates friendship every day of the week--now in paperback!

It’s Tuesday, at the soccer game! April likes to play soccer, and Mae likes to win. When a slip in the mud causes Mae to miss the winning goal, she's frustrated. But best friend April helps Mae see that one loss doesn’t make her bad at soccer and reminds her that playing with friends is just as fun as winning.

With imagination and humor, Every Day with April & Mae brings all there is to know and love about friendship to life in a way kids can both relate to and learn from, making this a perfect fit for young readers ready to step up from picture books.
