It's a book with rhyme but doesn't flow off the tongue well. The recording is boring. Although the message is good, it feels forced, almost preachy. Overall not that bad but not that good.

My son (6) and I read reviewed this book for Mother Daughter Book Reviews. Here are our brief thoughts. You can visit us at our website for the full review.
I loved the pictures and the cover of the book. I really liked the painting in the book because it looks like space with different coloured stars. I also liked the way Bleagh was drawn. I liked Bleagh and I felt bad for him when he was homesick. My favorite part of the story was when the kids were being really nice to Bleagh even though he was sometimes rude and mean. My least favorite part of the story was when Bleagh said "Eagh" about the painting because it made three of the kids cry. I learned that even though someone is acting mean or rude that you shouldn't be mean or rude back. Sometimes they act that way because they are sad or mad so they need care. I really liked this book because it had a good story and good pictures. I think ALL boys and some girls would like this book, even grown-ups.
MOM'S BOTTOM LINE:
BLEAGH! A book about values is, in short, a gem. It features an unusual and sympathetic main character in "Bleagh" (love that name!), the illustrations are excellent and kid-friendly, and the life lessons in this book just happen to overlap quite neatly with some of positive messages I try to reinforce in my children. I highly recommend BLEAGH! (I still giggle every time I say that out loud!) for parents of young children, librarians, and preschool, kindergarten, or early elementary school teachers as a great resource for teaching socialization skills. Ages 3+
