5.0 out of 5 stars Great lesson, October 10, 2012
 By Stephanie -A great read to kids about bullies and feelings. We loved the doggies as the people in this story. Every kid should read this.
 
5.0 out of 5 stars Too cute, October 5, 2012
By
Jeffery Baker This made my girlfriend giggle, she loves puppy tales. The mixture of different breeds havinc fun together made it even more cute!
 
 
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful pictures..., August 4, 2012
By critters -The pictures here are beautiful and are nicely optimized for Fire; the landscape format will even override a locked screen for maximum viewing. The print can be double-tapped to enlarge, a fact that probably should be explained for readers who aren't aware. Most highly recommended!
 
4.0 out of 5 stars That Dog Is a Bully, July 18, 2012
By Nancy Mauerman (Portland, OR) -Emily, a dog in Boston, breaks from her person, meets a bully and a new dog to the city and finds herself in a pickle. The bully is funny and entertaining at the new dog's expense but his jokes create bad feelings inside Emily. She changes direction and breaks free from the bully. The lesson the book presents is direct but not preachy, the pictures are simply beautiful and echo the story's message through the body language of the dogs. I had some problems with the small text but I love the book plus at the end I found a map and sketch of all the important sights mentioned in the story.
I like stories that focus on noticing the feelings inside and making big choices, like this one.

BULLYING - COPING WITH PEER ABUSE

EMILY BREAKS FREE will help address the problem of bullying in a non-threatening context and suggest techniques for responding to a bully.

Emily is a nice, playful little dog. So why would she join forces with a big
bully like Spike? Even Emily is confused about the answer to that question. It's true that Spike makes Emily laugh, in spite of herself, and he is fun-in a way. Emily is flattered when Spike invites her to tag along with him.

But when Spike begins teasing a fluffy outsider named Cotton, Emily is sorry to see the hurt look on the little dog's face. And the dog biscuit Spike takes from Cotton does not taste as good as Emily had thought it would. Emily really regrets being lumped together with Spike as among "the meanest ol' dogs" Cotton has ever encountered.

Just when Emily is wondering how to make things right, a bewhiskered terrier named Emerson saunters onto the scene. A dog of principle, Emerson shows Emily that it is possible to break free of Spike.

Emily's story unfolds along the Freedom TrailTM, Boston's famous walking tour of historic sites from the Revolutionary era-the Old South Meeting House, Faneuil Hall, the Paul Revere House, the Old North Church, and more. These scenes of the American struggle for independence from Britain are a fitting backdrop for Emily's struggle to free herself from Spike and his tyrannical ways!

Author Linda Talley's compelling, graceful and carefully researched story about resisting bullying and finding freedom is irresistible reading for young and old alike. Illustrator Andra Chase's captivating watercolor depictions of the
colorful cast of characters, as well as her also carefully researched renderings of historic American buildings and other sights on the Freedom Trail will help bring this important story to life for all readers.

A SURPRISE and added bonus is the "Enrichment Information" whch includes lots of facts about the American Revolution, Boston, and the Freedom Trail, as well as interesting notes about Faneuil Hall, the Old North Church, Paul Revere House, Old South Meeting House, Boston Common and more. This is fascinating detail that did not make it into the story itself, but is very rich in colorful descriptions of Colonial Boston.

A second big plus is the "Letter to Parents and Educators" which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with the young reader about the message of the story...how to cope with bullying. So even though on the surface, this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.

There are specific methods to avoid and cope with bullying embedded in the story.

Fully Illustrated Version

Picture Book for reading with the younger child - ages 3-6

This version of AMAZING MALLIKA includes all the luminous illustrations just waiting to enchant children of any age, and especially the read-to set.


CONTROLLING ANGER

Journey to India and discover ways to control a hot temper.

MALLIKA is a tiger with a temper. Her short fuse is ignited first by her infuriating brother Ben and then by a mischievous band of jeering monkeys. Short-tempered Mallika even manages to get mad at herself!

It takes Mallika a while to figure out that being angry is no fun and that a tantrum doesn't make things better.

India's Ranthambhore National Park is the scene of Jami Parkison's powerful story about managing anger. Once the private hunting grounds of maharajahs, Ranthambhore is now a wildlife sanctuary and home to the magnificent Bengal tiger. Under ancient banyan trees and among ruins of palaces and pavilions, this now endangered species rules the landscape. Ranthambhore is home to a host of exotic species, including leaping sambar deer, the regal peacock, the imposing tree-pie bird, and the revered langur monkey. Artist Itoko Maeno captures the mystery and excitement of Mallika's world in compelling watercolor illustrations.

So journey to India and Mallika's world and meet an amazing little tiger who learns amazing ways to control her hot temper.

A SURPRISE and added bonus is the "Enrichment Information" which includes lots of facts about India, India's People, the Ranthambhore National Park, the Peacock, the Sambar, the Banyan Tree, the Cicada, the Tree-Pie, the Langur Monkeys, and best of all the Bengal Tiger. This is fascinating detail that did not make it into the story itself, but is very rich in interesting description.

A second big plus is the "Letter to Parents and Educators" which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with young readers about the message of the story...learning to manage and control anger and temper tantrums. So even though on the surface this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.

ALOHA POTTER!

A little angelfish learns to cope with unwelcome teasing

What do you do if you are an angelfish who feels so bad you don't even want to go out swimming?

That's how bad Potter the angelfish feels some days, all because of a teasing crab named 'Alakuma. 'Alakuma teases Potter about his size, about his name, about his timidity, about everything.

Potter has three very good friends and each one has an idea about what Potter should do. "Tease 'Alakuma back!" suggests Lio the seahorse. "Stand up to him!" advises Stripes the shrimp. "Get mad! Fight back!" throws in Jolly the nudibranch.

Potter soon learns that these aren't the best responses to hurtful teasing. But eventually Potter has a very good idea of his own about how to deal with 'Alakuma and, over time and with the support of his three friends, Potter is able to use this new strategy to turn 'Alakuma from a teaser into, maybe...a friend!

Artist Andra Chase has captured Potter's underwater world - Hawai'i's coral reefs - in luminous watercolors. Exotic anemones, brilliant sea urchins and fantastically varied corals all glow with color and life.

Linda Talley's straightforward story offers even the youngest readers or listeners easily grasped tools for dealing with unwanted teasing - tools that may have the 'Alakumas in their lives saying "Aloha."
