Eleanor Hurl the Peculiar Girl – Video Review

Mrs Average Evaluates had a very special guest join her for this video review of Eleanor Hurl the Peculiar Girl. 

“We like Eleanor Hurl because she’s a bit unusual… really the theme of the book is that it’s okay to be different… it’s about trying to make sure that we don’t look at difference as being right or wrong.”

We couldn’t agree more!

Eleanor Hurl the Peculiar Girl – Review

Many thanks to Gemma’s Book Nook for this fabulous review of Eleanor Hurl the Peculiar Girl. Here’s an excerpt from Gemma’s post:

“As I’ve said in previous reviews of children’s books I enjoy picture books that rhyme as they help to engage children and to support their understanding of rhythm, as well as being fun to read. This one had a lovely flow to it and was very easy to read, I didn’t find myself stumbling over any of the rhymes at all. I also enjoy books with a message and this one had just that too. This would be a lovely book to use with children to tackle the topic of bullying and understanding how all children can be different and unique in their own way.”
