Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Matthew dreads school, all because of two bigger boys who push, shove, and tease him every day at recess. He tries to handle the problem on his own, but things just get worse. Finally, he tells his mother—and she, Matthew, and his teacher work together to end the bullying once and for all. Kids in the same situation as Matthew will find comfort in knowing they can turn to adults for help, and parents and teachers will acquire valuable strategies for stopping bullies.

Review:

"In one of four titles in the new Helping Hands series from the duchess of York, Matthew feels sick every morning before school because two boys pick on him. With the help of a school friend, he gathers the courage to tell his mother; the results, while heartening, are nothing short of miraculous (when the teacher confronts the bullies, 'they felt embarrassed for being mean to someone who had never harmed them'). An appended section written by a child psychologist offers tips for parents. Available simultaneously: Emily's First Day of School; Ashley Learns About Strangers; and Michael and His New Baby Brother. Ages 5 — 7. (May)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
