Lilly keeps getting into trouble at school whenever Davy, a boy from the kindergarten class, asks her for help. It's a new challenge for Lilly. He is blind and a lot smaller than her and her friends. His dream is to play soccer with the bigger boys and he wants to shoot a goal with Lilly as goalie. Lilly tries to distract him by teaching him to yodel. He persists and they find a way to play with Davy's special ball, but even this doesn't satisfy. Everyone has an idea of what's best for Davy, even Lilly. But Davy has his own ideas about what he can and will do.
Lilly Makes a Friend is a touching story that shows how integrating special needs children into the schools is a challenge worth pursuing.
