Book Review: Red

Author/Illustrator: Jan De Kinder

From the Book Jacket: In this poignant story, a girl finds it funny when her classmate starts blushing on the school playground. Her friends laugh along with her, but one student takes the teasing too far. Torn between her sympathy for her classmate and her fear of the bully, the girl must make a difficult choice. This heartfelt book will inspire readers to find the courage to take a stance against bullying and show compassion towards others. 

Why It's On My Bookshelf: This has become a new favorite book of mine when talking to kids about how harmful teasing and bullying can become. The child who starts the problem ends up being the one to make the whole thing stop. This is a great story of how it is so important to not stay silent and also to take responsibility and make a wrong a right - especially if you created the problem. Love this one!
