If Bullying ‘Bugs’ You, Take a
Peek at This Children’s Book!
The wonderful story A Bug and a Wish tackles the topic of bullying.
Karen Scheuer is a first-time author and a teacher who encourages her students to use her book’s advice in various school situations. “In the years I have been teaching,” she says, “teasing and bullying have increased. I felt that the ‘bug and a wish’ concept would make a great children’s book for teachers to use in their classrooms.”
In this wonderfully illustrated tale, a little boy named Tyler is teased by the other boys. His good friend, Danae, encourages him to give the boys A Bug and a Wish. What could she possibly mean? When Tyler finds a ladybug and a dandelion seed, he thinks this is what Danae was talking about. As Danae helps Tyler learn the true meaning of her advice, Tyler finally understands the solution to his problem and hopes there will be NO MORE BULLYING!
