Must-Read | BLEAGH and BLEEP! A Second Book about Values

A few months have passed since her first book, BLEAGH! A book about values and my friend Leana has released the second book in her series - BLEAGH and BLEEP! A second book about values. We loved the adorable little monster in her first book and for this second one, it is revealed that Bleagh has a little sister called Bleep and together they learn important life values.

As with the first book, all 32-pages are filled with vibrant illustrations from the local illustrator that did the drawings for the first book, Little Pink Pebble. I love how Leana made use of rhyming verses to tell her story of Bleagh and Bleep encouraging one another and working together on a school project that they needed to present to class.

There were many parts in the story that I thought were very relevant to Lil Pumpkin. Like Bleep, sometimes we find that she gives up {easily} when things get too tough for her. She gets frustrated when she can't do something fast enough e.g. wearing her own clothes, and shuts down. As her parents, we know that she has the skills do it. I'm glad that we can make use of this book to discuss values such as commitment to finishing a given task and confidence in her own self to encourage and motivate her.

This book is also a great introduction to Lil Pumpkin on what life can be like with a sibling :) We hope that she can have a little brother / sister in the near future and although we can expect some bickering and rivalry, with respect and consideration for each other as shown by BLEAGH and BLEEP, through the book she can realise how wonderful it is can be to have a companion and friend for life in her sibling, and hopefully that will lessen any future sibling troubles haha *fingers crossed*

BLEAGH and BLEEP! A second book about values is currently sold at major bookstores like Kinokuniya for S$12. Perfect for parents to read together with their kids, it is also compatible with the Pen Pal Whizz, a unique educational tool that recites recites written text and plays music and sounds whenever a child taps elements of the pages with the Pen Pal Whizz. You can also check out its website for study resources and activity colouring pages.
