I picked this book because it covered the topic of bullying. For this book, I would have students write what they should do if they are being bullied or if they see someone else being bullied. ( )

Raccoon (the main character in the book) must learn to deal with a common problem of childhood: a bully at school. The best way to get rid of an enemy is to make him or her a friend. I really enjoyed reading this story, it had really cute illustrations and an important take away message. This book demonstrates one positive strategy you can use when dealing with a bully. This book encourages children to understand that many child bullies are themselves unhappy and gives the reader a good example of settling differences by peaceful means. ( )

This book is about how children(in the animal form) see and respond to bullies. Although the children are frightened of the bully, they all sit and listen to a way to positively confront the bully as a whole when they realize that the bully does not know how to make friends in a positive way.

Personal Reflection
I really liked the message in this book because it shows both sides of bullying. It shows how scared a child can be, as well as, showing that bullies do not know the proper way to make friends. In the end they were able to resolve the conflict and become friends.

1. Make a chart with ideas on how to deal with bullies.
2. Discuss with children how bullying is wrong.
3. Come up with a positive plan to talk with the bully like in the story. ( )

Move Over Franklin... There's a new raccoon in town!

Chester, Ronny and Cassie do it again! They come to Mother with a problem they have at school - a bullying badger. She helps them think through the "problem" with a story... I'm beginning to like Chester as much as Franklin (and I really like Franklin) for young elementary aged students!

This would be a fantastic addition to any elementary teacher's room library as well as the main library of any elementary school. Think about contributing a copy to young child's teacher!

I received a copy of Chester Raccoon and the Big Bad Bully from NetGalley. ( )
