Freda Stops a Bully by Stuart J. Murphy –ADVISABLE

 Murphy, Stuart J. Freda Stops a Bully 32 pgs. Charlesbridge, 2012. $6.95.  (Rating: G)
Freda learns how to deal with bullies one step at a time, as their teasing about her new shoes escalates. Includes tactics given in the form of advice from Freda’s mom and teacher.
This was an excellent book. The illustrations are bright and clear. The story is well told, with very clear tips on how to deal with a bully. I like that the advice is given by supportive adults, not just “provided” by the book itself. Very useful as a teaching tool.
