Have your children ever felt bullied by other kids?
Roxy and Tully is a great book to read to your children to get them talking about any uncomfortable situations they may have had with other kids.
In Roxy and Tully Words Matter, Roxy is a lovable three-legged dog nervous about starting school and wearing her new prosthesis. Clementine the pig befriends her, but “Tully the Bully” steals Roxy’s bone and makes fun of her leg. The other animals hear the hurtful words and join Roxy to tell Tully his words are hurtful. The reader learns that what you say and how you say it can have a very strong impact. Brought to you by Think Ahead Kids
