Anything that's human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary.
-Fred Rogers
There is hope, even when your brain tells you there isn't.

Learning Kit: Toys and Play

For this Learning Kit we have teamed up with Yesim Kunter, play expert, toy designer, futurist and founder of Play to Innovate. Yesim has worked with the likes of Hasbro, Lego and Toys “R” Us and brings her wealth of knowledge about the benefits of play to the new kit.

Our brilliant team of teachers and the BoB team have developed a brand new series of English Literacy, Practical Science, Art, History, Spanish and Mathematics all themed around the mental health benefits of toys and play.

Learning Kit: Nature

Welcome to the Book of Beasties' first home Learning Kit all themed around Nature, meet and help some brand new nature themed characters, as well as explore loads of wellness and mindfulness activities.

We have developed a number of complimentary curriculum based literacy, mathemematics, Science, Art, P.E and PSHE lesson plans created by fully qualified U.K teachers and the Book of Beasties team especially for you to explore at home or in the classroom. We also teamed up with author and horticultural expert Tom Hart Dyke from Lullingstone Castle.

Learning Kit: Stargaze

Space, it’s not so much the final frontier as it is one of the many frontiers that we use to separate us from reality as well as reconnect us to it, or remind us of the importance of our minute existence whilst at the same time humbling us within an ocean of awe and wonder.

The universe is where imagination begins, containing the unknown, unseen and unheard potentially forever, which makes it in equal parts the most terrifying and intriguing subject any self aware being could comprehend.

Please enjoy this Learning Kit in which you will be able to explore the wonderful world of the Beasties, discover and help brand new celestial characters, activities, stories and join us on an intergalactic journey.
