I purchased this book at ASCA 14 and actually showed it to the counselors who came to my presentation on Reduce Bullying via Bibliocounseling. I did so because it meets the criteria I use to select books to read aloud in class lessons. It definitely addresses our districts results statement, "Demonstrate effective responses to bullying situations." It has read aloud appeal including direct dialogue. The book is large (9x12") which means a large group of children could see the terrific illustrations done by Dr. Poppy Moon (a certified counselor). The story is only 20 pages long so the length is a plus too. There is a clear plat and it sends a message that if you want to have friends you need to stop being mean and use kind words and actions. It is age appropriate for K-1 and it depicts a female doing bullying behavior (many books are males doing the bullying). You might want to consider purchasing this book and adding it to your bullying unit.
