Every parent should read this book to their child to help stop bullies!
The author uses Sydney as a friendly monster,? to teach lessons about bullies. Through a story that is entertaining, uplifting yet inherently serious, young readers will not only learn how to spot bullying and its social, physical and mental detriments – but also find the empowerment they need to respect humanity’s rich differences.
There’s no way to sugarcoat it, bullying has become a fierce epidemic in modern schools and turns the lives of millions of children into a misery. Most victims find it hard to speak out and, acutely aware of young minds and their thirst for stories, one author has chosen a novel way to reach out to them.
The book’s premise is bold and clear-cut: to teach children what bullying really is, how it can plight their lives, and what they can do to help friends who may be suffering. Oh yes, it will also make them more tolerant, too!
Preaching directly to children doesn’t work, so the author opted for an enchanting story with a happy ending! All kids love monsters, hence Sydney is able to influence children in a way no human can, and the fact that he is one step removed from real life allows children to confide in his message in a way they simply couldn’t with any friend or relative. It’s powerful stuff.
This book has truly global potential. There should be a copy in every home, school, church or any place where young people congregate. It contains a message they desperately need to hear.
