Wakefield, RI, May 15, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- In this new children’s book, published by Dog Ear Publishing, we meet a boy who has a big problem during recess at school. He’s being bullied by another student and he doesn’t know what to do. He loves playing outdoors but every time he goes out to recess he is kicked, hit and pushed by the boy. Sometimes he even makes himself sick so he can go to the nurse’s office and avoid recess altogether. The boy tries talking to the playground monitors, his teacher and even his parents, but nobody seems able to offer him the right solution. Finally he talks to the gym teacher. He learns that, by continuing to seek help from adults until one helps him, he can get the support he needs to be safe.
The Playground Bully Blues by author Marc J. Ladin, is a story told from the perspective of the boy who is being bullied and offers solutions to kids about how to deal with the problem. This is an important book not only for children, but also for parents and teachers as it raises awareness about bullying and promotes empathy and understanding. Children of all ages will enjoy the rhyming verse and the bright and animated illustrations. Here is what others are saying about The Playground Bully Blues:
“The Playground Bully Blues sends a strong message to children that they can protect themselves from bullying and other forms of abuse. The engaging, clever use of language makes this book a great teaching tool. As an elementary school teacher and the mother of three, I find the message powerful, timely, and compelling.” — Erica Connolly, Parent
“Using delightful rhyming verse, The Playground Bully Blues is a wonderful story that illustrates the power caring adults can have to stop bullying. I recommend it!” — Mike Dreiblatt, Author of How to Stop Bullying and Social Aggression.
