Stop Bullying! A Bug and a Wish

Bullying.  Teasing.

Both words just bring dread.  Unfortunately, it seems that students have to deal with both more than anyone should have too.  I always begin my year discussing both of these topics with my students.

As teachers, we all want to put a stop to bullying and teasing before they even begin.

This book deals with both of these topics.

Karen Scheuer is a 2nd grade teacher who knows first hand how bullying and teasing has been on the increase in the last several years.  She decided to write a book to address both of these.

In this wonderfully illustrated tale, a little boy named Tyler is teased by the other boys. His good friend, Danae, encourages him to give the boys A Bug and a Wish. What could she possibly mean? When Tyler finds a ladybug and a dandelion seed, he thinks this is what Danae was talking about. As Danae helps Tyler learn the true meaning of her advice, Tyler finally understands the solution to his problem and hopes there will be NO MORE BULLYING!

This book is a great book to have in your classroom to use in your classroom to read to your students.
