Can You Decide? | A children’s book about bullying
Written by Mary Ann Dixon, OP
Illustrated by Laura Rangos
This book for children is an attempt to provide insight into behavior. It tries to affirm the children who cope with life; it attempts to empower children who think they are helpless, and it challenges those who treat other children badly.
Bullying is a serious behavioral pattern and can create a sense of helplessness in the victim. Empowerment is the goal. This book can provide a teachable moment about life’s disappointments, but clearly there are times when professional intervention is required.
We are grateful to the education professionals, especially Katie and Lorna, who offered us the benefit of their experience and wisdom.
