    With so much bullying going on both in reality and virtually this is a book that kids need to know about, have a discussion about, and internalize. Brother and sister, Bobby and Mandee, explain to kids all about bullies and being bullied."What is a bully? A bully is someone who is mean or hurts other people."Mandee when returning from swimming at the public pool is accosted by a bigger boy who demands she turn over all her money then threatens her by telling her..."Next time, you better have more money for me. Remember also, you better not tell anyone about this or I'm really going to hurt you."Poor Mandee with tears running down her face, scared out of her mind, embarrassed and humiliated runs for home. She confides in her big brother Bobby who takes Mandee to their parents to tell them what happened. "THIS IS NOT A SECRET TO BE KEPT." You need to talk to someone because this is a big problem that you cannot solve by yourself. With the help of an adult, there are solutions to his problem."There is a list of adults suggested that can be approached to confide in if parents do not give the help you are seeking. There are tips on keeping yourself safe, like going places with friends and not alone, avoiding places where the bully hangs out, and if the bully ever confronts you again you are not to say anything rude or get angry but walk or run away from him or her. The biggest take-home is be sure to tell an adult because ...This book includes a list of grown-ups, both men and women, who will help out in an emergency and a Safety Test to make sure how bullying works and what you can do about it to keep yourself safe.I highly recommend these books for both home and school use. Being aware of dangers that surround you and knowing how to respond can and does save precious lives.

    Bullying is a serious problem, and this book does a lovely job helping kids learn how to deal with it. The author takes a traditional problem, a bully seeking a kid's money, and shows how the little girl runs to her brother for help. I enjoyed this added trust siblings sometimes share. The reader is then lead to solid suggestions on how to deal with the bully, while reminding them that a bully was often a victim once themselves.I appreciated the concrete tips and found the way they were described as very believable. Although I was a little disappointed with the 'pocket-money' demanding bully and felt another example might be truer to life, the author handled the situation wonderfully in a way children will easily understand.At the end, there's a list of emergency contacts and a quiz to help deepen a child's understanding of the problem. Although bullying is a theme which can have many levels, I found this book a super way to let a child learn the first steps in solving such a situation.I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Too Smart For Bullies by Deputy Sheriff Robert Kahn and Sharon ChandlerThis is a Children's Safety Book. This book tells children how to deal with bullies. The authors clearly describe and define a bully and bullying. They also address how to address bullying. Their primary defense is to tell a trusted adult. They list trusted adults. They explain what may cause a person to be a bully which will engender some empathy and understanding instead of more negative emotions. Bullying is sadly not something out of old sitcoms but a daily problem. I would have liked to seen some examples of bullying that were not focused on the physical type of bullying. Emotional and cyber bullying can be just as devastating. I think the author's use of tests and suggestions for role playing are excellent. As a former teacher and current kindergarten volunteer and I see how successfully repetition is for the younger child. I recommend. site:http://fhautism.com/bobby-and-mandees...

    One day, Mandee is walking home from swimming. She sees her brother, Bobby and tells him she’s being bullied at the swimming pool. He gives a great suggestion. What is it? Tell Mom and Dad!In the back of the book are several helpful things for children. Among them are a safety list and a list of safe grownups that you can talk too.I recommend this book for both parents and their kids and should be in every home library. Parents should discuss bullying with their children and the author offers several options of what to do about it.This book was sent to me by the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
