After witnessing firsthand the teasing that Bobby has to endure, Robin's mother talks to Bobby and Robin's teacher, Ms. Wells. Ms. Wells develops a clever class activity to teach the children that everyone is different, but these differences should not be grounds for bullying. Using puppets, the children come to see the good in everyone, no matter how different. This informative book is a must read for all parents of young children who may be or are dealing with bullies and teasing at school.

This book offers real solutions. At last someone has a book about the responsibility of peers and adults as well as helping the bully change the way he acts. The author writes an entertaining story from the point of view of a classmate of a child who is bullied. In the story, the counselor has children participate in role playing with puppets. This is told in enough detail that teachers, parents, or other counselors can create the same experiences for their children. The author also has suggestions and resources listed on the last pages. These are springboards for effective discussions. Ideas include ways children can cope with bullying, ways adults can help, ways to help the bully change, places to call for helpful advice, and web sites to visit. The author has probably dealt with this on her job as a preschool service coordinator and behavioral consult. She works with special needs children and their families.Was this review helpful?
