Meet Boris and Betty, the lazy bears in the story Boris and Betty by Lee Harris. They would get out of breath just climbing the stairs and they would spend hours sitting in Mummy’s front room, playing their computer game, Space Zoom. Mummy told them that there was a whole new world outside and playing in the sun was as exciting as their tablets and gadgets. She took them deep into the woods and they came across a giant-sized tent. They met Daisy Deer who was exploring and playing games. As they walked back to the shop, they saw a gigantic playground. While playing there, they met another friend from school, Henrietta Horse, and she was having fun in the playground. Who else do Boris and Betty meet? Will they both begin to discover the outside world?
The story introduces children to the joys and excitement of playing outside and this is a perfect story for young readers who are glued to their gadgets and tablets and do not find time to look beyond that. The illustrations are adorable and they give a good pace and movement to the story. There are a lot of kids like Betty and Boris in many homes and they will be able to relate well to these two lazy bears. It is a good storybook to encourage children to go out and discover things and explore the world outside, instead of staying at home and being glued to computer games. Tutors and educators can use it in classrooms to help children embrace the wonderful, joyous world outside.
