And Bernardo Takes Spiky UnderBernardo takes Spiky nder paw introduces Spiky to his family and Spiky gets to know them allSpiky also learns about all the activities you can do that don t involve hurting others and what a hindrance his spikes had been suddenly he could now feel the cool breezes enjoy swimming as the water splashes on him sunbathe and roll in the grass so the blades tickled himEventually Spiky s spikes return there is no explanation for these occurrences other than I guess the Universe is trying to tell him something and with that he assumes his scary identity has also returned so he resumes scaring the other animals in the forest as if nothing ever happenedExcept something did happen because he experienced personal growthSo being scary doesn t feel Sweet Valentine uite right anySpiky goes back to his sulking rock and ponders what the point of all the scariness is He thinks about how he has come to appreciate the vibrancy the other animals bring to the forest how the trees had sheltered him when he played in the grass and how the birds weren t as annoying as the thought though he still doesn t like snailsSidenote I do wish he had also had thoughts here about how terrible it was to trap the birds bore holes into the live snails and de wing the butterflies to reinforce that those things are to be regretted too since they were the most reprehensibleBernardo finds him and asks what s wrong Spiky asks Bernardo if he is afraid of him now that he has his spikes back and Bernardo says he isn t afraid because Spiky is still Spiky with or without his his spikes Bernardo invites Spiky to visit his family again and for many days they do activities and have fun there is a cute drawing of Spiky on a blowp raft in the water but it is deflating because one of his spikes poked a hole in it LOLOver time Spiky learns that it feels good to be kind and open to new experiences and to make friends and that his spikes don t define himI think this book is supposed to be a commentary on how Our looks do not define who we or others are Letting others define s instead of figuring out who we are on our own can be detrimental Being Open And Honest open and honest who we are with others instead of learning to hide behind armor spikes and masks results in happiness It is hurtful when we judge others and ourselves on appearance only Overly identifying with physical features or doing that to others can be harmful and limitingThe fact that it does all of this in less than 20 pages is pretty impressive honestly and I do think these are valuable lessons and present a good opportunity for a talk with. Ing everybody at a distance and that’s just how Spiky likes it But then one day the nthinkable happens Spiky starts losing his spikes Soon he is left looking as soft and as pink as a soft pink marshmallow What will Spiky do now that he can no longer .
I can relateA very well written book about grumpy people I believe A good take off on explaining to a young one that we don t have to be mean or grumpy Also in spite of our differences or spikes we are who we are or grumpy Also in spite of our differences or spikes we are who we
Are Can Enjoy The Companycan enjoy the company those not like s I choose this book because of the message but the text was just okay for me Predictable with no surprises or even aha moments except when Spiky says aha Even the attempted humor fell short The illustrations are the best part Originally posted on Word Cauldron I received this as a Kindle First Reads book for June 2019When I got my selections for Kindle First Reads this month it was of the same WWII biographies of people I ve never heard of or have no interest in reading about and psychological thrillers Boring I was going to pick nothing but then looked at the children s one and it seemed promisingUntil I read the disturbing and alarming reviews on I decided to not get it and forego a free book this month but morbid curiosity has won out and I got Spiky I wanted to read it for myself and form my own opinionSpiky has a lot of spikes on him This is great because he is a loner and the spikes keep spikes on him This is great because he is a loner and the spikes keep away from himHe is also BAD VERY BAD His dad even sent him to a school for being bad that is how bad he isTo demonstrate how bad he is there are lots of snarling drawings of him and we learn that he steals food from other animals makes faces at the trees and laughs at frogs for being gly The most Some Like It Hotter upsetting bits for other reviewers were that he also Pulls the wings off butterflies because he is jealous they can fly this is only in text the graphic shows him trying to catch a butterfly with a net Captures birds in glass jars to punish them for being so happy graphic does show birds in a glass jar Pokes holes in the shells of live snails because they are slimy and slow this is only in text the graphic shows his shadow looming over a fleeing snailBut one day all of his spikes fall outHere we come to the crux of Spiky s identity crisis His whole view of himself came from his dad who taught Spiky that he is bad because he has spikes which are sharp and hurtful and intimidating meaning that as a porcupine Spiky must also be sharp and hurtful and intimidating to others so his inside reflects his outsideBut now that he has no spikes who is Spiky His only representation of his identity and personality has disappeared He had never considered who he is beyond the physical attribute of his spikesWhile contemplating all of this the other animals make fun of Spiky because he is naked and suishy and pink and does not look scary any longerWhile sulking on a rock a rabbit named Bernardo approaches Spi. When Spiky loses his spikes he must learn to share his softer sideSpiky lives in the dark of the forest where he spends his days being very very bad bullying the other forest creatures and sharpening the spikes on his body Those spikes are handy for keep. Children about this kind of self awareness critical thinking in these areas can never begin too early in my opinionWhat isnfortunate is that I do think the book would have been just as effective and appealing to a wider audience without the three disturbing animal abuse examples particularly since some may stop reading at THAT POINT AND NEVER GET TO THE LIFE LESSONS point and never get to the life lessons learns For one thing there are plenty of other examples that could emphasize how bad Spiky is without venturing into sociopathic territory honestly the author could have stopped after laughing at the frogs for being gly But my biggest concern is that these examples could plant ideas into the impressionable heads o A fun enjoyable read for kids that teaches valuable lessons about kindness and acceptance Have your kid keep a lookout lessons about kindness and acceptance Have your kid keep a lookout all of the spiky things that belong to Spiky even his teapot has spinesI received the Kindle edition of the book for free as part of the Kindle First Reads program First ReadsCute story Nice illustrations Cute illustrations Overall a good children s book This is a cute illustrated kids book about an animal called Spiky He prides himself on being bad to other forest creatures ntil one day he starts to lose his spikes Only then does Spiky realize how it feels to be teased and picked on Thanks to the help of Bernardo the Bunny Spiky soon realizes that he can do new things without his spikes But when they suddenly grow back he has a decision to make The first half of the book is too dark for picture book aged children animal tortureI get what the story was trying to convey but in the beginning Spiky was physically torturing small animals pulling wings off butterflies closing Marrying Well up birds in glass jars to suffocate and poking holes in the shells of snails with spikes That s not bullying thats psychotic behavior and the book suggests he just grew out of it and figured out how great friends are The font was challenging to read because it was thin and a bit frou frou There were also too many complicated vocabulary wordssed that the picture book crowd wouldn t nderstand The illustrations were wonderful but there is to children s books than pictures Change is possible One of the free options for Prime for the month
