As a children's author myself I love the Bentley Hippo books and what they stand for. These are not just books with fun little stories; they deliver an important message that helps young children deal with society, including the other kids around them. Book 4 in the series is all about cultivating patience, something we all need to do more of! As with the other books in the series, Bentley is also a figure of positivity: rather than be disappointed when the rocket ship turns out somewhat differently to what he and his friends had imagined, he immediately sees the positive side and influences the others. Bentley is patient and he is also kind; a true leader. I thoroughly recommend this latest release in the Bentley Hippo series!
The Adventures of Bentley Hippo: Inspiring Children to be Kind by Argyro Graphy is the second of five books in the Inspiring Children Collection. Bullying affects children in many ways and it’s certainly not an issue that should be treated lightly. This storybook addresses the topic very nicely with lovable characters and realistic scenarios. Children will learn about the signs and types of bullying. Knowing how to defend themselves by standing up to mean persons is very important too. The artwork in this animal storybook is appealing. There are many lessons about being kind to others. Other books in this lovely theme-based educational collection inspire children to share and never give up. Parents and teachers can add this collection to their children’s reading list.
Yes, she has. Argyro Graphy has produced another wonderful book for children. Firstly, the illustrations by Michael Reyes are as exceptional as always. Clear and colourful, they just about jump out of the page. The story has a good pace and excellent dialogue between the characters. The story is engaging and fun and has a message that is not too pushy but evident nonetheless. These books are great for kids to learn about life and a useful tool for parents. And, Bentley is a loveable character in his own right. Well done the team!

"There is also a lesson in the pages about being different and accepting those differences. The best part was that after listening to the book, my little grandson shared his orange with me. He told me just like the monkey shared his food. I highly recommend this book."
"This is such an impactful read! My child has ASD and it’s hard to find children’s books that help other small children understand differences, as well as this author, has done in this story. I will be sharing this story to his school to help build awareness and acceptance for others. Kudos to this author for doing this in such a lighthearted and child-friendly way to encourage children to just be kind to others no matter what their differences. Highly recommend!"
"Great lesson for kids The illustrations are bright and cheerful. Teaches children about being kind and caring. I recommend this book to parents, teachers and children."
My kids enjoyed this story and we all liked the overall theme of bullying, and how it was told. It shows how bullies make their victims feel, and how others can be made to join in out of fear. The story had a good ending and the characters were very cute. My kids loved Bentley and the elephant
"Another delightful addition to the Adventures of Bentley! I am super-excited to read this to my Preschool and JK students! They fell in love with Bentley's first book and now we have another to add to our collection!"
"We are big fans of reading, especially books with an inspirational and teaching moment message. There’s always something we’re working on with our daughter: sharing, being kind, never giving up - all those “fun” topics we teach our kids.
Which is why we love Bentley Hippo"
Bentley has hit it out of the park again with another book in this series, this time teaching kids about “patience”. What an important concept, and one that helps us all if we can only be a little more patient with ourselves and with each other. As always, the characters are lovable and adorable. You will fall in love with Bentley and his crew!
