about

In this simple but substantial picture book by Lana Button, shy, quiet Willow silently wishes she could find a way to say no to her bossy classmate Kristabelle's demands, but the words never seem to come when she needs them. That is, until Kristabelle starts using the powerful threat of un-inviting children from her ?fantastic? birthday party to keep them in line, and Willow decides she's finally had enough. Surprising everyone, even herself, Willow steps up and bravely does something shocking, and it changes the entire dynamic of the classroom. <_brthis20_child-friendly20_and20_relatable20_story20_about20_bullying20_is20_elegantly20_told20_with20_honesty20_and20_heart.20_the20_simple20_artwork20_by20_tania20_howells20_beautifully20_captures20_the20_subtleties20_of20_the20_story3b_20_the20_children20_are20_the20_main20_focus20_of20_the20_spare20_illustrations2c_20_allowing20_their20_body20_language20_and20_facial20_expressions20_to20_leap20_off20_the20_page20_and20_showcase20_exactly20_how20_they27_27_re20_feeling.20_this20_is20_a20_book20_that20_will20_have20_young20_children20_on20_the20_edge20_of20_their20_seats20_at20_storytime2c_20_deeply20_sympathetic20_to20_the20_dilemma20_faced20_by20_willow20_and20_her20_classmates.20_what20_makes20_this20_book20_particularly20_helpful20_is20_that20_it20_presents20_a20_model20_for20_how20_any20_child2c_20_even20_a20_shy20_one20_like20_willow2c_20_can20_find20_his20_or20_her20_own20_way20_to20_deal20_with20_a20_bossy20_or20_bullying20_classmate.20_it20_offers20_a20_pitch-perfect20_lesson20_on20_how20_to20_stand20_up20_for20_yourself2c_20_terrifically20_aligning20_with20_character20_education20_lessons20_on20_courage.20_the20_empowering20_message20_here20_also20_helps20_promote20_individual20_self-awareness2c_20_self-esteem20_and20_good20_decision20_making. child-friendly="" and="" relatable="" story="" about="" bullying="" is="" elegantly="" told="" with="" honesty="" heart.="" the="" simple="" artwork="" by="" tania="" howells="" beautifully="" captures="" subtleties="" of="" _story3b_="" children="" are="" main="" focus="" spare="" _illustrations2c_="" allowing="" their="" body="" language="" facial="" expressions="" to="" leap="" off="" page="" showcase="" exactly="" how="" _they27_27_re="" feeling.="" this="" a="" book="" that="" will="" have="" young="" on="" edge="" seats="" at="" _storytime2c_="" deeply="" sympathetic="" dilemma="" faced="" willow="" her="" classmates.="" what="" makes="" particularly="" helpful="" it="" presents="" model="" for="" any="" _child2c_="" even="" shy="" one="" like="" _willow2c_="" can="" find="" his="" or="" own="" way="" deal="" bossy="" classmate.="" offers="" pitch-perfect="" lesson="" stand="" up="" _yourself2c_="" terrifically="" aligning="" character="" education="" lessons="" courage.="" empowering="" message="" here="" also="" helps="" promote="" individual="" _self-awareness2c_="" self-esteem="" good="" decision="">
