Wow ! Excellent lesson in how to deal with a huge problem that is causing so many problems in the lives of many of today's youth.This book offers so many solutions and tactical approaches in looking at bullying in another light and that is the why,as in why is this person inflicting misery on others?and then Renee Brown expertly offers up an answer, and that, is maybe this person is just passing on their misery!
And then the concept of offering to help the bully deal with their own personal issues! Brilliant, brilliant approach.I strongly suggest that any parent with school age children go out and purchase this Book and also the first book The Big Rig Kids!
Teach children and change the next generation! The lovely author Renee Brown has written and published another best seller that deals with bullying which is a huge issue all over the world. However, this book is addressed for the elementary aged child who can read on a fourth and fifth grade level. A great age and time when the character of a child is truly being developed. I recommend this book to the public libraries all across the nation and in all elementary school libraries as well as for the parents of young school age children. After all, character development starts in the home of each individual! Get your copy of this book and go share it with your local elementary schools and request it to be added to the assigned reading lists! It's important to teach compassion!
The Big Rig Kids book series are definitely worth reading. The children have responded well to the characters and followed the plot well. I will be sharing this book with other teachers I know for reading lists for assigned reading! Great job Renee Brown, Grandma Polly and Sapphire!
