Mini and Milo help children gain much-needed skills such as conflict management and resilience skills.
Story-led, with humour and heart, this series follows the adventures of Mini and Milo as they navigate friendship and all its ups and downs, such as competitiveness, managing inner voices, learning to listen, and communicating effectively.
The Big Flappy Ears is the perfect book to share with your child to learn the skill of LISTENING.
Mini’s ears are bigger than big and huger than huge … but she has a problem. They aren’t very good at listening. When Mini misses out on the excursion, she realises that maybe her ears aren’t the problem after all. It’s not the size or shape of your ears that count, but using them!
These are the feelings that we can’t always put into words…I think this is why this series is good for readers of all ages, to help us understand how we feel, how others feel, and how everyone navigates the world differently and understands the world differently. I hope that this series explores many ways of feeling to help everyone.
The Mini and Milo series is a must-have for home and school libraries, and I highly recommend The Big Flappy Ears.
Kids Book Review
Trial and error helps support decision making, while working together on a problem supports friendship and cooperative behaviour. The Mini and Milo series create situations where cooperation is at its centres and children reading will see that problems can be solved through cooperation and trying things out, particularly after asking a friend for help.
A gentle story told with warmth and empathy and delightful illustrations bursting with colour and energy will ensure children love spending time with this pair and learn plenty of things along the way. Problem solving, working together and how to be a supportive friend are at the heart of Mini and Milo’s story.
