Toby says Be A Buddy Not A Bully by Charmaine Hammond

Toby, the Pet Therapy Dog, Says Be a Buddy, Not a Bully by Charmaine HammondThis is a cute story about a 'working dog 'who gets bullied but doesn't retaliate. He goes back to his owner and the owner handles the situation.

His example teaches children at school that it's not ok to be mean and if you see someone being mean you need to speak up and then tell a responsible adult.

The story also teaches that it's ok to be different and Toby loves everyone, even if they like brocolli icecream. He loves people for their individuality. And it follows that we should too.

I thought the book well written and good for teaching a lesson. There's also questions for discussion at the back of the book and a few games/puzzles.

Recommended for classroom reading and discussion.

I received a free book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
