The Juice Box Bully: Empowering Kids to Stand up for Others based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The children portrayed in this story are part of a unique school group that opted to participate in the challenge to create a more open and secure learning experience for all. By learning that each and every one of them has something to contribute to the overall whole, they learn to cherish the connections they make with everyone. By refusing to allow themselves or their classmates to be bullied in any way, they gain even more momentum in eventually achieving an environment where learning is top priority and ridicule is a thing of the past.To put this one simply without revealing the entire story, it addresses bullying in school with an interesting new way to handle those perpetrating the offense. The school presented has proactively in lieu of reactively addressed the bad influence bullying has on everyone and everything through something referred to as 'The Promise'. It's a guide to what children (and adults) can do in order to not merely be bystanders but to be those that make sure the voices of others are heard. Through making better choices and wiser decisions, by including others whenever possible and accepting each other for who we are "flaws" and all, there is a great lesson to be learned and carried out into the real world by readers of all ages. Combine all of that with the colorful illustrations and you have a winning combination indeed. Tolerance and acceptance. Both words command power, but when wielded appropriately, they can help us bring the world that lives in our dreams forward to our reality and just think what a wonderful place that would be. Be sure to check out the 'Resources' section of the book site for the down loadable reader's guide that goes with this title as well as your very own copy of "the Promise" to be put to use in your local school's to help build a better, brighter, and bully-free tomorrow.
