The Bear is a conversation starter: blog tour day 14

The Bear with the SwordDAY FOURTEEN. Alphabet Soup Editor Rebecca Newman reviews Davide Cali and Gianluca Foli’s fable, The Bear with the Sword on her Boobook Blog. She notes how useful it is in getting kids to talk about some meaty issues:

This picture book would be wonderful for discussions on a variety of topics, such as:

  • environmental issues
  • actions and consequences
  • anger management
  • body language
  • bullying
  • conflict resolution

The Davide Cali blog tour is taking place from 1 to 15 May, as a countdown to Davide’s first visit to Australia from 16 to 28 May. Every day, some of Australia’s most interesting book bloggers will be posting interviews with him, reviewing his books, offering giveaways and maybe giving a sneak peak of his award-winning new book, 10 Little Insects.
