We received many, many new children's books over the past few weeks. Two of our favorites are Enemy Pie and Don't Laugh At Me. Swing by the library and for a terrific summer read!
It was the perfect summer. That is, until Jeremy Ross moved into the
house down the street and became neighborhood enemy number one. Luckily
Dad had a surefire way to get rid of enemies: Enemy Pie. But part of
the secret recipe is spending an entire day playing with the enemy!
In this funny yet endearing story, one little boy learns an effective recipes for turning your best enemy into your best friend. Accompanied by charming illustrations, Enemy Pie serves up a sweet lesson in the difficulties and ultimate rewards of making new friends.
Filled with inspiration and celebration, Don’t Laugh at Me is the anthem for a new bully-free world. Read it, sing it, and cheer!
Do you wear glasses? Ever been picked last for the team? Afraid you’ll be called on in class? Don’t laugh at me. Don’t call me names.
Have you laughed at someone else for the same reasons? Someone you thought was geeky or slow--someone different from you. Don’t get your pleasure from my pain.
For anyone who’s ever been bullied--or been a bully themselves--it’s time to change your tune. This is not a book for whiners, but a new language that will give you the words you need to take charge and stop the cycle of teasing.
