Billy And Ant Fall Out: Pride (Billy Growing Up #2) (Hardcover)
Suitable 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 Growing Up 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 false or arrogant pride--a negative and unhelpful emotion.
