Pearl Barley and Charlie Parsley (discussion questions)

On Instagram (@rose.pennington.education) I'm sharing my favourite quality children's books along with discussion questions to develop the social and emotional competencies that are associated with the books. 

Pearl Barley and Charlie Parsley by Aaron Blabey

What are some of the ways the Pearl and Charlie are different? What are some of the ways they are the same? (you might need to think a bit harder for this one... the love they have for each other for example)

What makes their friendship special? (the fact that they complement each other)

Pearl seems to be very strong. What are the ways that Charlie is strong?

They project very different personalities - loud/quiet, brave/more scared. Is one necessarily better than the other?
Just because someone comes across as braver or stronger, does it mean they are?
