... but felt compelled to let the world know how great this book is
on 3 March 2015
I don't have much time to write reviews but felt compelled to let the world know how great this book is. I loved it so much I bought a few copies and donated them to my son's school. My 4 year old son loves this book and sometimes after a hard day at school he will ask for the book and go to a specific page and ask me to read it...I then know 'something' has been going on at school. After reading the page we then have a discussion about the situation and what he could have done or the other person could have done to resolve or prevent the situation arising in the future. The book is done in cartoon form and my son is completely engaged by this book.....more so than any other book we have. My favourite part of the book is inside the front cover which lists all of the 'ways to be a good friend' and inside the back cover which lists 'ways not to be a good friend'. I think this would be an amazing anti-bullying resource for schools especially for the reception year and a must have for any parent who wants to rear a nice person. We also use it as a resource to encourage being nice to your little brother! It covers topics like bullies and bosses, including and excluding people, ways to make people feel good about themselves and bad about themselves, standing up for your friends etc. The best and most useful book i have ever bought.
