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 and 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.
