Book of the Month (July 2018) – Hansel and Gretel

Our book of the month is “Hansel and Gretel”. It teaches children not to trust strangers and don’t disobey their parents.

Hansel and Gretel can also be seen as a story about kids being clever and resourceful. The idea that two young children can figure out how to save themselves against all the odds is something that can encourage all children when they are faced with difficulties.

Granted this is just a fairytale, but capitalizing on the lessons in the story and encouraging resourcefulness and bravery in our children can make a big difference in their lives.

At Belle & Russell, we encourage our kids to be brave by being nice to the new kid, by trying new things, speaking in front of their friends and many others.
