A delightful and whimsical book about good and bad manners for kids.
Gordony and Bondy are two brothers. The older brother is a bully and tries to teach his baby brother how to get respect from others while he is rude and scary them.
"Friends? Who needs friends when we can intimidate everyone and always get what we want?"
Bondy advises his little brother to be fierce, cruel, rough, harsh, and to terrorize everyone in the jungle.
All little Gordony wants is to be gentle, polite, well-mannered, and to have many friends.
When Gordony behaves as he likes, his big brother is very angry. He is worried that his sibling's manners will damage his status and bad name. The only thing he could do is to chase him away from their area.
The book is for brother's rivalry, for friendship, and what lessons we learn when we grow up. How we all are given a choice to be polite or rude.
Kids will learn what are the good manners and how will act the good and the bad person in theirs life. Every kid will love the baby brother and want to act like him and to have many real friends.
This book is perfect for bedtime listening or during some quiet time so kids can enjoy and take in the easy-to-digest ideas.
This is a touching story about a child working through a very real-world (and in some ways a very adult) challenge. The details in the illustrations and story progression allow for conversation and interpretation. My 6 year old reads this to my 3 year old, teaching the lessons and values she finds in this book.
I couldn't be happier with this purchase.
It is an engaging story that trains children how to deal with a bully, how to overcome their fears and be brave to stand up for themselves, and no matter what, to always be proud of who they are. Children should be happy to be themselves and not let anyone lower them for who they are or weaken their self control. It's a good story for the little ones on how to be nice, kind, well mannered and put a stop to bullying. The story is an easy read and lovely images help to bring the meaning of the tale to life. I will attach his favorite images from the book.
