By following a few simple steps, you will create mouth-watering treats without needing any special skills, equipment, or ingredients.

The recipes have been tested by many people. We’ve chosen the best ones.

Simple, but not primitive.

  • Easy to make. Recipes are broken down into 3 categories of difficulty, but even the most difficult ones are manageable for a child.
  • Most recipes require 3 to 10 ingredients.
  • Don’t require gourmet ingredients. Chances are you already have everything you need, or you can find it at the nearest supermarket, regardless of the country you live in. In addition, there are substitution options for many of the ingredients.

Little bit was able to assist in the preparation of a pizza by placing toppings on top of the crust once the crust was ready. She now enjoys pizza so much that she requests it virtually every day!

I had a great deal of fun looking through the recipes and choosing ones that were appropriate for my little one. We both enjoy preparing meals together.

The Adventures of Bentley Hippo: Inspiring Children to be Patient, by Argyro Graphy

About Book

A loud knock at the front door has Bentley startled.  Who could it be?

An excited Jaxon, rambles on not making any sense.  Racing ahead pointing in the distance, Bentley follows this silly monkey.  A large crowd has gathered making it impossible for Jaxon to see what the fuss is all about.

Sprinting to the front of the line, Jaxon is stopped and directed to the back of the line by the ticket agent.  Frustrated, Jaxon looks around, waiting for the right moment.  Determined, he makes a mad dash. 

Inspiring Children to be Patient teaches:

the importance of waiting your turn

understanding the meaning of being patient

identifying ways to stay calm

respecting others around


Bentley has his hands full with this hyperactive monkey.  The illustrations and expressions will have you giggling in this entertaining and educational story.  

The fourth in the Inspiring Children Series, this makes a wonderful gift for any occasion, and a great addition to classrooms, libraries and daycare facilities.

My Review

The Adventures of Bentley Hippo, Inspiring Children Series, by Argyro Graphy, is an impressive series of stories for children. The newest addition is no less impressive.

Bentley’s friend, Jaxon, a monkey, comes to Bentley’s house one morning so excited Bentley can’t understand him. As Bentley follows his friend, there are many slip-ups in Jaxon’s behavior. Jaxon causes mishaps such as making everyone’s ice cream fall on the ground. Jaxson gets in trouble because he can’t stand still. Bentley figures out Jaxon is a very impatient monkey.

After recognizing and understanding the problem, Bentley helps Jaxon figure out how to stay calm. Jaxon and Bentley’s other friends, Daisy, the giraffe, Toby, the elephant, and Marty, the lion, also help Jaxon.

Graphy’s story will explain to children and help them understand how their disturbing and distressing overexuberance and impatience impact and affect everyone around them, including themselves.

The illustrations, by Michael Reyes, are striking and vibrantly portrayed. The appealing pictures are eye-catching and attention-grabbing with their rich, intense colors, which are sure to appeal to young kids.

The author aptly shows youngsters how to accept others for whom they are, in addition to helping them without unkind criticism, bullying or judgment. The Bentley Hippo stories are effective means of conveying these lessons to children.

MY THOUGHTS

The Adventures of Bentley Hippo: Inspiring Children to Never Give Up, by Argyro Graphy, is a good book to use to encourage children if they have a disability or are going through a tough time medically. The animals and children share about their own disabilities, including those that aren’t seen, in order to show not everyone, (indeed no one) is perfect!

The pictures are appealing, vibrant and cute. They do a good job of illustrating each animal or child’s disability or illness, while at the same time the characters explain the same. As they are reading, or being read to, children will be able to better understand compassion and friendship towards others. I feel one of the greatest lessons to learn is optimism and that every day is not a bad day. These are among the many valuable lessons to be learned from Bentley Hippo and his friends!

The book is recommended for ages 3-8. However, I feel it is better suited to ages six and above as the subject matter may be a little “heavy” and scary for younger children.
