Children are influenced by their parents, guardians, older siblings and sometimes their friends. They all become role models, whether they are a good or a bad influence.
When children see their parents, other adults and older children showing respect for each other they usually do the same with their siblings and friends.
Busy Izzy is a wonderful role model for all children and the Busy Izzy world is a great tool for parents and guardians.
Children are also influenced by the media; (books / television / devices / online games / therefore, it is important not to expose them to content which includes bad attitudes, aggression and violence.
Busy Izzy leads by example. She is compassionate, kind, caring and thinks of others first. She solves problems in an understanding way.
Busy Izzy is the ‘can-do’ girl who always knew exactly what to do. From repairing a bicycle tyre, rescuing puppies and kittens, making snacks and running her store called Nix & Nax in Green Grass Grove. Busy Izzy always makes good choices.
Educating Children through action is important. Instilling confidence, every child is different. Children tend to copy their role models, therefore educating children through action is important. Showing love and support always.

The Vegetable Song - My Little Veggie Patch
See the video by clicking here:
Do you eat your veggies? Busy Izzy and her friends do, they love to eat healthy fruits and vegetables because they know it keeps them strong and healthy too.
Busy Izzy's veggie garden is at the back of Nix & Nax. There is a compost bin full of scraps from when Izzy makes and bakes healthy snacks. The compost bin has a little red wiggler worm called 'Wormee', a compost-vermi, and his friends who turn the scraps into vermi-compost. Just a taste of rotting waste, they all move in. They're a positive advantage in Busy Izzy's compost bin.
Izzy has a beehive with honey bees. These hard working littlies pollinate the fruits and vegetables. Pollination occurs when insects such as bees visit flowers, collecting nectar and pollen. Pollen is rubbed onto the insect and is then rubbed off onto the next flower the insect visits.
We are thrilled to hear from parents and teachers of little ones about how much they love Busy Izzy and the Busy Izzy and Friends, children's picture books . We love seeing the kids dressed as their favourite character.
Here is 4 year old Zara, dressed as Busy Izzy, whom she loves by the way. Her mum, said that Zara asks to have the Busy Izzy and Friends books read to her before bedtime.
In Zara's mum's words,
"I read the books to Zara every night and she just loves them. I have observed how Zara appreciates Izzy's qualities and says, "When I grow up I want to be kind, thoughtful, helpful, and a wonderful friend just like Busy Izzy is to all her friends". I had to buy her a little puppet puppy just like Newly Truly, who is Izzy's clever rescue pup.
The Busy Izzy and Friends books are a must for all little ones, I love them as they teach the importance of empathy, kindness and being a great friend."
Thank you Zara's mum.
Book three in the series is about kindness, friendship and loyalty, no matter what goes wrong. True friends are always there for one another. Always there to listen and help. As today is R U OK Day? It is perfect time to share the link to this book about kindness and friendship and also fun. Oh, and easy to make healthy recipes too are included in the book.
There is music too.
This picture book is an exciting read for kids who are read to and for those who are early readers.
We have a song and guess who the voice of Tess is? It is the one and only, Bec Hewitt, as the voice of Tess. Super talented Bec is just wonderful as Talkative Tess. She brings an effervescent personality that only Bec Hewitt can.
Thank you Bec...we love you at Busy Izzy and Friends.
