New to the Penworthy Story-time Collection in October is the fantastic small press title, The Only Way is Badger by Stella Jones. Badger is the main character who is extremely relatable to even the smallest child. He is stubborn, rude, obstinate, loud, demanding, bullying and exclusionary. Badger feels the only right ways of living and being are to be more badger, to look like, live like, act like and be like a badger. One by one, he excludes every other animal from the forest by bullying them and then casting them aside for their own uniqueness. In the end of the story, Badger realizes he is all alone, and finally sees all the other animals had value too and having friends is more important than holding on to his bullying and exclusion.
This Penworthy Pick is perfect for story time. Badgers demanding ways are great for read aloud exaggerations and make for a very fun and animated story time circle. This book is excellent for teaching behavior, character building skills, friendship and tolerance of others for Pre-K and up.
