My children are addicted to reading, often I find them up at all hours of the night or morning with their noses stuck into a good read. Recently thanks to KIWIreviews my boys have been introduced to the Big Little Blue series, this focuses on two penguins and so far, has targeted the idea of mindfulness, and also the idea of friendship, when I saw that book 3 had been published, I was excited to find out what this book would focus on, and I knew the boys would be keen to read another one!

As with the other books in the series this book has a vibrant front cover which features the two blue penguins that are the main characters of the story. This book has been created in the format of a graphic novel and is easy enough for readers that have started reading by themselves, they may need help with a couple words, but predominantly they can read the rest. The illustrator has designed the penguins to look cute and playful, throughout the book there are numerous other creatures that have been created and look pretty realistic, also the same goes for the scenery, especially the rock pools and when the penguins are in the water.

The first story out of three in the book focuses on the issue of needing help or assistance in a situation, the big penguin comes to aid the little penguin, and they are successful, however things get out of hand when they continue to thank each other for their help by giving each other a gift, which soon pile up causing an issue.
The second story focuses on the issue of rewards, the two penguins went around helping others but were expecting to be rewarded in some way for doing so but were then left feeling disappointed when this did not happen. However, at the end of the story both penguins realize that helping a friend is part of being a friend, and that if you are doing something because it is the right thing to do you should not expect a reward in return.
The final story in the book focuses on being kind to others, one of their friends is feeling a bit sad and upset, so the penguins decided the kind thing to do would be to sit and keep them company and to then give them a hug, this was rewarding for all involved.

Yet again this series does not fail to impress, I love that this book can be read to or by a primary school aged child and they would easily be able to work out what the point that the author is trying to get across is. I like that there are 3 pages of Thoughtfulness Tips which pretty much summarize what was just read in that story, a good way for a teacher to go over and refresh the children once finished reading. This book will now join the other two that we have had the pleasure of reading and head to our local school library. Both my children and I eagerly await to see if there will be more titles added to the series in the future!
