Thanks for the review. I think sometimes when it comes to children learning things that a forced rhyme is best because they may get the meaning better than not rhyming at all. I am glad that you gave it a 4 even though you did think it was forced. It sounds like this is perfect for the children of ages of the bullying stage. I wish everyone would read or give this to their kids!

Sounds like a Great Children's book about Anti-Bullying, also about not polluting. It's neat that is has artwork and rhyming so even though it's for 8-12 yr olds it can be read to younger kids Out-Loud. The reviews it has sound really good. Congrats on being #BOTD! Thanks for sharing your review.

I love the presentation of the story. It is presented in a scrapbook style. As I flip the notebook, I am imagining an artistic kid making the story and the illustrations. This story has two great messages to the readers. To pay attention to bullying issues and to pay attention to the rampant pollution issues. Two thumbs up to this. Congratulations to Luz Agudelo.

I agree about the forced rhyming but the formatting for this book definitely seems like it would appeal to children.

I like this book especially because it deals with two issues. The first being bullying and the second being pollution. I believe that bullying is a form of psychological pollution that keeps kids from achieving their potential. I also like that the book had illustrations and that the book looked like it was written on notebook paper. This would be a great book to read out loud to your children. :D

This looks like a great book. Bullying is horrible, especially now, with cyber bullying. There is a far reach now, and the victims can’t get away from their attackers. I love to see authors go after subjects like this. Maybe some of these younger kids will think twice before doing this to a classmate.

I love the idea of a dual message. I wish this would have been around when my boys were younger. It certainly sounds like a helpful book. Thanks for your insightful review!

Making rhymes flow smoothly is tricky. Dr. Suess was a smart man, but even he had to invent his own words to make smooth sounding rhymes ;)

Great review! Too bad this book wasn't around when I was a kid. Bullies were everywhere, or it sure seemed like it. That's cute that it rhymes.

Looks a very informative book that's also a great topic to be discussed in children's books. I for one love nice illustration, so this looks like a good read.
