    Recommended - Great book.

    I heard this in song before I knew it was a book. Children enjoyed the pictures and the story. Meaning comes across in the very colorful pictures.

    I Love this Book!!

    I love this book because my fellow classmates are not the best of friends at the moment and my teacher just had us watch the video. I was so inspired to get the book. So I did and it was very true about the fact that you can always be treased. Because there is always something that makes you different from other people and people don't normally like someone who is different then themselves!

    I am now purchasing this book since the teacher I borrowed it from has moved. I read this book and played the cd for my kids and we had a huge discussion about this and the main idea and what connections we had to the book. We also did a activity where each person had a paper heart and one someone shared what soomeone has said to them and it hurt them then they had to tear peices of the heart out. At the end I had masking tape 'bandages' to have them tape it back to gether and I asked if it will be the same with all those bandaides on there. Another one I am going to try is having an apple and each time someone says somethign mean bop it on the floor and when we cut open the apple, there will be bruises on there, yet red on the outside. This leads into a discussion as to sometimes the kids hurting on the inside and not ever showing it. This book is wonderful.

    I work two jobs, the first is with several handicapped children, and the second is with deaf students. The first time I heard this book I cried (I was in the middle of my graduate social studies class). It couldn't have been said better! Don't Laugh becuase someone is different because deep down we are all the same!

    Saddest Thing I've Ever Heard/Read

    My brother who's seven bought this book online. I thought that it was one of those books on why not to bully and how to stop bullying. It did so much more. This book made me cry. Buy it. You won't regret it.

    Buy this book and share it widely!

    My experience is that this book is powerful to both adults and children that are exposed. I used it in a homeless classroom with resounding success (ages 5-18). All the kids loved the illustrations, were touched by the music, and shared their experiences with 'bullying.' The adults in the room were moved to tears by the honesty and feelings that this story evoked in all the 'high-risk' kids that were present. I recommend both this book and the Operation Respect project/website to anyone that works with children professionally or has children of their own. We need to teach children tolerance and the pain associated with 'bullying'...
