Howard B Wigglebottom Learns About Bullies

During the last year I have been working on teaching my children about bullies and that they do not need to let people be mean to them, they can speak up about what is going on by talking to mommy or daddy, the teacher or an adult where they are. I feel like we started this a bit early but my son had a taste of a kid being very mean to him last year in Jr Kindergarten.

Since then I have been looking for fun ways to teach the kids about some serious topics including Bullying. Recently we had the chance to review Howard B Wigglebottom Learns About Bullies by Howard Binkow.

Howard Binkow has a whole Howard B Wigglebottom series that teaches children very valuable lessons from Listening, Giving to it's okay to back away. Howard B Wigglebottom is a white bunny that is in elementary school. P and I sat down together to read about Howard and the bullies. My son was glued to the pages and then in the end asked a million questions about why the Snorton Twins acted the way they did with Howard, we also talked a lot about the sentence Howard says throughout the book "Be Bold, Be Brave, a Teacher must be told". The last couple pages of the book are lessons and reflections. This is a great addition to the book to spark a conversation with your children and teach them how to deal with bullies and to report them if it happens.

I would recommend this book for young school aged children or even as a book to read just before your children start school.

Want to learn more about Howard B Wigglebottom? Spend sometime on We Do Listen Foundation website with your children. They can listen to animated books, songs, play games and print out color pages. There are also lessons for parents to work with their children on for each book.
