The Lonely Toadstool: A Children’s Books About New Friends That Come as We Find Our Voice is a celebration of growth that should reach a wide range of readers and read-aloud adults with an important message about community and connections that is especially important in divided, lonely times. 

The picture book story depicts  little toadstool's cry for help, his longing for support systems, and the surprising response his effort to connect brings back to him. 

Replete with important messages for modern times and wrapped in gorgeous colorful illustrations by Ruthie Arthur , The Lonely Toadstool provides all ages with an essential illustration of kindness as well as the importance of expressing emotion, asking for help, setting boundaries, and being more inclusive in their friendships.
