Billy Is Nasty To Ant: Jealousy (Billy Growing Up) (Volume 3)
Jealousy only really hurts the person who feels it. Help your child to understand how this emotion stands in their way to feeling happy.
Billy Field and Ant Turner are involved in a school production. Billy believes he deserves the most attention, and the prize for being the better student. When his best friend Ant receives both, he feels jealous. For Billy, it isn’t fair, and he’s afraid he will lose his popularity as Ant becomes the centre of attention. Billy blames Ant for how he’s feeling and wants to get his own back. He tries to turn people against his friend, and even tells lies. Ant has done nothing wrong, and doesn’t understand why Billy is behaving the way he is.
What can Ant do to stop Billy from being so nasty? What will it take to restore their friendship? Does Ant want Billy as a friend in future?
