This is one of my favorite books we teach in Kindergarten! Rodney Rat has a speech impediment that attracts a bully, Camilla Capybara, and she is out to embarrass him! His speech is eventually what saves the class from the bully and turns Rodney into the hero! He is never made fun of again! So many great lessons throughout the story and the illustrations are engaging! ( )

Due to a speech impediment, Rodney Rat is unable to pronounce the letter “r” when saying his words. This puts a target on his back, especially when Camilla Capybara comes into town and leads the class in humiliating Rodney. However, it turns out the one thing that makes Rodney the target in class is the thing that eventually beats Camilla, and makes him the class hero! [return][return]This book addresses students who are bullied for the way that they talk. Many students in schools all across the nation have speech impediments, and have trouble talking or saying certain words. This book would allow them to feel confident about themselves and see a book that they can relate to. It could be used to have discussions about speech impediments in classrooms, and teaching students that they are not any different from everyone else.[return][return]Modern Fantasy[return]Reading Level: 3.1

This book is about a rat that has a speech issue, and always gets made fun of. But when a mean bully shows up to the school, Rodney makes her look silly in front of everyone. This book could be used in the classroom to teach about bullying and embracing your differences. This is a good book for younger ages. ( )

Poor Rodney Rat can't pronounce his R's and the other rodents tease him mercilessly. But when Camilla Capybara joins Rodney's class and announces that she is bigger, meaner, and smarter than any of the other rodents, everyone is afraid. It seems she really is bigger, meaner, and smarter than all of the rest of them. Until our unwitting hero, Wodney Wat, catches Camilla out in a game of Simon Says.
