Mikal Phillips’ New Book, ‘Mikey Makes a Friend’, Is an Appealing Picture Book That Aims to Foster an Environment of Acceptance and Respect Towards Diversity

Mikal Phillips, a native of Beaufort, South Carolina, and an incredible man who loves to bring people together, has completed his new book, “Mikey Makes a Friend”: a heartwarming piece introducing a neighborhood kid, Mikey, and the history of his friendship with his best pal, Albert. The latter, just like any other kids their age, looked like a normal one. However, he is kind of special, and this special side of him taught Mikey that the world is filled with amazing people who live life differently.

Phillips writes, “Mikey could be a kid anywhere. He understands kids can be different but chooses to make friends based on experiences, not perception. Join Mikey as he learns just how fun and rewarding making a friend through sign language can be.”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Mikal Phillips’ new book is a beautiful tale that promotes a growth mindset and social awareness. A highly recommended story that explores valuable elements such as friendship, belongingness, and differences.

Readers can purchase “Mikey Makes a Friend” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
