9781910727089: Billy And Ant Fall Out: Pride (Billy Growing Up) (Volume 2)

For 7 to 9 year old boys and girls.

False pride makes a child feel so important that they would rather do something wrong than admit they have made a mistake. Could pride be playing a part in your child’s negative behaviour? Billy Field says something nasty to his best friend Ant Turner, and they row. Ant goes off and makes a new friend, leaving Billy feeling angry and abandoned. Billy’s pride will not let him apologise to Ant until things get out of hand. Is Billy the sort of person to have as a friend? Will it be possible for Billy and Ant to be mates again? Can they overcome their differences? Billy And Ant Fall Out is the second title in the Billy Books series. Each book addresses a unique topic—bullying, arrogant pride, jealousy, lying, stealing, lack of self-belief, understanding money, and secrets. Written to help parents, guardians and teachers deal with the issues that challenge pre-teen children; each topic is presented in a gentle way through storytelling. Setting the issues in a meaningful context helps children to understand the challenges, and to see things from a different perspective. The books act as icebreakers allowing for discussions of difficult subjects. Additionally, each title is supported by a free activity book to reinforce the learning, while having fun. Buying this book today will support your child in dealing with arrogant pride—a negative and unhelpful emotion.

About the Author:

I am a dad of two grown children, and a stepfather to three more. I started writing five years ago with books designed to appeal to the inner child in adults - very English humour. My daughter Louise, reminded me of the bedtime stories I told her, and suggested I write them down for others to enjoy. I haven't yet, but instead I wrote the eight-book Billy Growing Up series for 8 to 11-year-olds. These are traditional stories with positive value based plots. Although the main character Billy and his friends are made up, Billy's dog, Jacko, is based on our much-loved family pet, which, with our second dog Malibu, caused havoc and mayhem to the delight of my children and consternation of me. Prior to writing, I was a college lecturer, and later worked in the computer industry, at a time before smartphones and tablets, when computers were powered by steam, and stood as high as a bus. I believe in, and strongly support the values based education program founded by Dr Neil Hawkes being introduced to UK and world-wide schools.

Review:

This ... book reminded me so much of Diary ofa Wimpy Kid, particularly the part where Greg and Rowley have a big fall out.Like the first book, there's a lot to be learned here. This story really doeswell in capturing the essence of childhood. There is an authenticity in theportrayal of the characters that I admire. There is a lot of pressure thatcomes with growing up, and I love how that's unfolding in these stories. Adultscould learn a thing or two from kids. I especially like the way the stories remindme of childhood qualities I've grown out of, qualities that made life a lotsimpler. I didn't get this sense of nostalgia with the first book, but thissecond book certainly evoked a lot of emotions. Alecia Stone, CBY Bookclub

"Parents will find that this is an ideal book to read to their children, based as it is, on delivering a message by means of the story itself." Anthony Sims. "This book is easy to follow and well written. I found the language and, in particular, the dialogue convincing. It's never easy for an adult to write conversations that children can identify with by Mr Minter does an exceptional job. As well, the plot moves along at a cracking pace which will keep young readers focused and captivated until its end. The illustrations are very good and add to the overall portrayal of the story." Susan Day " I think a lot of young kids will relate to his character and hopefully they see how Billy makes it right in the end and will be inspired to make good decisions from the get-go." Alex Apostol
