Gently, Bentley!

Publisher: Child’s Play

Review

Five-year-old Bentley is an easily excitable and energetic rhino who charges around his house and school. No matter how many times he is reminded by his family and teachers to be careful and slow down, Bentley stills gets into all sorts of trouble. Chaos seems to follow him everywhere! But will he remember to be gentle when it’s most important?

This tale of an energetic and clumsy rhino tells the important message of not rushing around and being aware of your surroundings and others. Accompanied with quirky illustrations, this is a simple and soothing story for young ones.
