Remember Bleagh, the friendly monster who learnt plenty of values on his first day of school? I reviewed Bleagh!: A book about values earlier this year and I want to share with you how Bleagh’s doing in Bleagh and Bleep!: a second book about values.
Now, just by looking at the cover, you’d be able to guess that Bleep is a monster too – and a girl monster at that. If you already have Bleagh, you can ask your child(ren) who they think Bleep is (predicting skills are important in comprehension).
If you haven’t guessed by now, Bleep is Bleagh’s sister. In this second book of values, they learn about respect, independence, commitment and confidence – highlighted with a gold badge just like in book 1.
I thought the page (below) was particularly encouraging, especially for my little girl who has the tendency to give up when the going gets tough. I took the opportunity to share with her about how she should persist and have the tenacity to continue trying, even when she may find that the task too difficult.
I also like how Bleagh and his friends exemplified how children can make keen observations of the world around them, ask meaningful questions and have the curiosity and enthusiasm to find the answers to their questions.
This is what I’ve been wanting the kids to do. Constantly look around, be aware of our surroundings, make observations and ask questions.
