Bleagh! A book about values: Review & Giveaway

bleagh a book about values reviewWith the start of the new school year, young children who may be in school for the first time or in a new class may feel anxious about the environment and fitting in with the rest. Here’s a book that I thought would be appropriate to share with you at this time of the year.

It’s BLEAGH’s (pronounced BLEH) first day of school and he feels shy and homesick. For those of us who have kids who are not afraid to be in class on their own, we could use the book to teach them about Empathy:

For kids who may identify more with Bleagh instead, we can discuss with them later in the book how Bleagh eventually overcame his fear and made friends.

Leana Lyn Doray uses a lighthearted and engaging story to teach children key lessons in empathy, tolerance, creativity, cooperation, appreciation, and integrity.

My girl’s favourite part – BLEAGH eats garbage!

Instead of ostracising Bleagh for eating strange food, they asked Bleagh about his food  (Tolerance) and when he was still hungry the children banded together and creatively found him more to eat.

Personally I like that each individual value is highlighted with a gold badge. This helps to make the lesson clear so children can easily grasp each concept and (hopefully) demonstrate it in their own life. Each value is also explained in simple terms which makes it easier for children to understand. And the beautifully illustrated pages are definitely a draw for children!

Want to own your own copy? Here’s the good news! A copy of Bleagh – A Book about Values is up for grabs!
