Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Ava is in the fourth grade in a new school. She is picked on by Hailey and Samantha. Although Ava had been good at soccer in her old school, in her new school she is nervous and clumsy on the field. Ava is of mixed ancestry. She tells Dad and Mom about the teasing. Mom calls the teacher. On the bus Ava tries to be friendly with her seat mate. While Ava is sitting against the school wall, Hailey and Samantha surround her. Ava remembers Dad's encouragement and tries to stand up to them. When the teacher calls Hailey and Samantha away, her seat mate on the bus helps Ava up. They become friends. At the back, "self-esteem" is explained. "People with high self-esteem are confident and like who they are." They take pride in what they do, try new things, and act independently. People with low self-esteem put themselves down. Focusing on the positive and keeping a list of things you like about yourself may help. Certain words such as "puberty" and "mindset" are explained in blue sidebars. There are a few pictures. A list of questions to think about, a list for further reading, websites, and an index are included. This is part of the "Kids Have Troubles Too" series. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
