I read Thomas and the Lily Pond to my 4 year old boy and he really enjoyed it. It was a nice and easy way to introduce some tough concepts at an early age.

Prevent Bullying and Encourage Good Character

If you are a parent or teacher concerned about your children and the effects of bullying, you will want to read Thomas and the Lily Pond.

Bullying has an enormous negative impact on our society. It can strike unexpectedly and it leaves millions of innocent victims completely bewildered and often ostracized through no fault of their own. The earlier we can alert our children to this unfortunate reality the better. It requires reaching out to them as soon as they can comprehend the meaning of the word bullying.

Perfect for Children Four to Six Years Old

Thomas and the Lily Pond is a book written for children from ages four to six years old. It specifically describes this issue, the signs leading up to it and the full impact bullying can have on the recipient. It is a fully illustrated story set in a forest, revolving around a very contented group of animals working and interacting together very amiably, until their world is quite literally turned upside down.

The cause of this upset is due to the arrival of an enormous frog who is decidedly devoid of any social mores. His primary target is the poor, hapless turtle named Thomas, a hard worker and also a very popular and valued member of the community, until he has the great misfortune of being confronted by this large, green, uninvited interloper.

Trust, betrayal, loyalty and manipulation are demonstrated and brought into question in Thomas and the Lily Pond. Friends of the docile turtle now turn on him. Included in this melange is a feisty skunk named Spike, who values his role as fierce protector of the forest, a vain blue jay, a chatterbox chickadee, a bounding rabbit with large, droopy ears and a very prickly porcupine, named Princeton. A deceitful plan is hatched and most of the trusting group forget about their true and loyal friend as they are all consumed by greed.

The whole scene is observed by Winston, the wise owl who sits and surveys all from his perch high up in the old oak tree. After a raging storm erupts and a potential disaster in very wild and rough water, the group is rescued by the least strident and innocent one of all.

Wisdom, Positive Influences and Pitfalls to Avoid

There are many pearls of wisdom and many pitfalls to enlighten your child within this creatively illustrated and easy to understand story. By the conclusion, many questions will be up for discussion as to why some people do not have our best interests in mind, but rather, their motives are often driven by a self serving agenda. Children will recognize how easy it can be to lose sight of their own values and fall prey to others through great temptation and the influence and pressure of others.

In Thomas and the Lily Pond your child will see many examples of unacceptable behaviour that unfortunately and increasingly pervade our society. Through this recognition and understanding your child may be able to make a difference in the world.

This is a book parents can easily read to their child in its entirety, or enjoy and savour chapter by chapter as a bedtime story over the course of several evenings.

Far, far away, where the mountains meet the sky and the air resounds with the songs of the skylarks, there was a tiny, little egg on a huge sunflower.

‘Wow, you are so strange!’ said the sunflower. ‘Come quickly out of your egg. Let me see who you are!’

Hearing the sunflower’s kind encouragement, he started to stick out his feet one after the other. First, there were only two…then four…then six…By the end, he had so many feet, the sunflower couldn’t even count them.

‘Wow, one thing is sure, you are not short of feet!’ cried the bee.

‘How red is your hair!’ said the spider.

‘What am I?’ wondered the tiny egg. ‘Maybe a beautiful skylark or a graceful swan or maybe a sweet little chick?!? … Oops!’

As he was wondering, he rolled down and hit the ground. The eggshell broke and the newcomer was out of the egg…

When twelve year old Joe Mitchell, along with his two younger sisters, arrive at the sleepy seaside town of Smugglers Cove, they are expecting a quiet uneventful holiday.

This ruined fortress sits on the outskirts of the village and, as the children soon discover, holds more secrets than they could ever imagine.

Follow the children as they explore the castle dungeons, get chased by bank robbers, crawl through a hidden tunnel, and more!
