Sami's perfect life falls apart when the new girl moves in next door. Three can be a tricky number with friends because most of the time someone gets left out. Follow Sam as she discovers how to keep her best friend and find room for one more in Pink Tiara Cookies for Three.

    Maria Dismondy was born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan.
    Maria's experiences have shaped her into an individual who lives life to the fullest, appreciating what she has and one who uses her passion to make a difference.
    Maria takes experiences from her own life and uses them in her writing. Being in education for over ten years now, Maria knows what children need to hear from books in the classroom.


    Sami and Stella were best friends but when Jasmine moves in next door and wants to be friends with them, Sami treats her terribly not wanting to break up the nice friendship she had with Stella, but Stella feels otherwise. Stella wants to befriend Jasmine and include her into her friendship with Sami.

    Sami complains and protests and even makes demands upon Stella that if she is friends with Jasmine that she will no longer be friends with her. Well, that puts Stella in a tricky spot, forcing her to have to choose. But Stella refuses to do that. Will Sami realize that having another friend is a blessing and not a curse?

    This story is a great demonstration of what many children in school face at times. They have a best friend to hang out with but when someone new comes along it's hard to adjust to having that other person around and letting them into their life. When the truth is the more friends we have the better. There's always room for one more friend and it is always a good thing to make someone who is new to a school or neighborhood feel welcome.

    All children, though especially girls, will enjoy this 32 page beautifully illustrated soft cover picture book. The illustrator, Cary Pillo, did an amazing job bringing these characters to life in a realistic way that will help children understand the moral of the story. The author, Maria Dismondy, has created a story that will help children remember that bullying others can come in many forms and to also remember the golden rule. "Treat Others as You Would Like to be Treated!"
