Say Something Giveaway and Review

At this school, there are some children who push and tease and bully. Sometimes the hurt other kids by just ignoring them. The girl in this story sees it happening, but she would never do these mean things herself. Then one day something happens that shows her that being a silent bystander isn't enough. Will she take some steps on her own to help another kid?

Bright, fluid, realistic watercolors illustrate the story, set in a school with lots of diversity. Resources at the end of this book will help parents and children talk about teasing and bullying and find ways to stop it at school. One child at a time can help change a school. (excerpt from inside cover).

In the book, Say Something by Peggy Moss, a child learns a lesson about bullying and teasing the hard way. She isn't willing to say something when she sees it happening to kids all around her at school and on the bus but when it happens to her, she suddenly views it differently.

This is a great book for any parent to read, especially now when this subject is happening to either our own kids or kids we know. This book helps kids realize that they can do something to help and that this type of behavior shouldn't happen to anyone. I can't think of a better way to discuss this subject with our kids than this wonderfully illustrated story that puts it in a way that hits home with our kids.

I received this wonderful book, compliments of Tilbury Publishing House for my honest review and think no home with kids should be without this book. Great for youth groups at church, day care, and schools I can definitely see this as a great way to discuss this topic to our children and those we know. This book rates a 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion and has a place in our permanent library!

  6. This would be a great book to read with my 6 year old daughter to teach about name calling and bullying. It might even be appropriate to have her teacher read this to the class.
