2. Dogs Don’t Do Ballet by Anna Kemp

Dogs don’t do Ballet is a children’s storybook that talks about Biff, the dog who was different. He does not do the typical things that dogs do such as peeing on lampposts, scratching his fleas or drinking out of the toilet. Even when you throw him a stick, Biff will just look at you and will not fetch the stick. Biff is not an ordinary dog. Biff likes moonlight and music and walking on his tiptoes. Biff does not think he is a dog, he thinks that he is a ballerina. But dogs do not do ballet, do they?

This story has a hilarious twist to the typical life of a dog. This story sends a message to children that if you try you may succeed! It is about following your dream and believing in yourself. Children will not only enjoy the story but also the beautifully-drawn illustrations.

Age: Recommended for aged 3 and up

3. The Littlest Dinosaur and The Naughty Rock by Camilla Reid

The Littlest Dinosaur and the Naughty rock talks about the littlest dinosaur who is in a bad mood. He was rude and impolite to everyone – his father, mother and his siblings. Finally, he was sent to the naughty rock for timeout. The littlest dinosaur does not like to sit on the cold and uncomfortable rock. He was feeling sad and starts to tear. All of a sudden, the rock starts to move, in fact it was rocking! It turns out that it was not a rock that the littlest dinosaur was sitting on! The littlest dinosaur received some advice from the ‘rock’ to handle his behaviour. Will everyone forgive the littlest dinosaur? What was the rocking rock?

This is a perfect book that talks about anger/temper management to children.
