A fresh & original twist on the common issue of bullying. Kids will relate, & parents & teachers will appreciate the story's deft handling of conflict resolution (which happens w/o adult intervention)

Mean Jean was Recess Queen and nobody said any different.

I read this book to my class and they loved it. It is a great way to teach others about bullying. It is also a way to teach students that bullies can be made into friends. Sometimes the reason they are so mean is that they may not know how to make friends. I love the new girl who doesn't give in to Mean Jean, but instead invites her to jump rope. Wow, if we could all do that!

I bought this book for my little boy who was a bit bossy on the playground. Now, I read it to him...because he is the one being bossed around by little bullies in 'big' school. The words are fun to read...and it's a great story for kiddos about getting along with others.

I ordered this book for my daughter, who had no interest in it. She took it to school and her teacher read it, all the kids loved it, as do she & I. With words like "skippity", who could not like it? My daughter reads it over and over, and asks her dad & I to read it to her for our inflections. We love it! Write on Alexis O'Neill!

My son is almost 4 and he loves books. He loves this book because of the sing-songy kind of rhyming words. And it's a fun, brightly illustrated book as well.

This is a great story to teach young students (K-2) about Bullying. It leads beautifully into a classroom discussion. The illustrations and the text are wonderfully done so children are poised on the ends of their seats!
