Salam! My name is Amira. In Arabic this means ‘Royal Lady’, or ‘Princess’! I live with my mum, dad, little sister Miriam and baby brother Ahmed.

Meet Amira and her friends and learn about their families, their cultures, their medical conditions and more, which make each of them unique and special.

‘I Just Want a Friend’ is the perfect tool for carers and educators alike to share with young children to help develop an appreciation of the social and cultural diversity within Australian society. This books encourages children to accept both their peers and themselves with their differences, and to be confident in expressing who they are as an individual.
