Reggie : Learns to Roll with It
Reggie is the official public duty car for the president. Being such an important car, you would think Reggie would always be happy and proud. He sees some of the greatest places around the world, rolling with princes, kings, queens, sheiks, prime ministers and movie stars, as thousands of people clap and cheer him along. However, Reggie wasn't happy. He would wake some mornings feeling a little flat. Sometimes it was his front tyres, sometimes his back tyres and occasionally, on a particularly down morning, all of his tyres. This made him feel sluggish and slow. Can Reggie's friends help him realise he is putting too much pressure on them to be perfect and round? This book will help children cope with disappointment and feeling down from time to time. This story is told as a metaphor to read aloud to children and enjoy together. The vibrant illustrations and use of language draws children in to be part of the adventure, gently guiding them alongside the characters to get the message on a more personal level for them, to make their own meanings and take control of their own life situation - in their own way.
