Bully by Laura Vaccaro Seeger
A perfect example of simple text presenting a huge message. Bully (the bull) does not have any kind words for his friends. His mean words send the other animals running except the goat. Goat calls him a "Bully" and Bully is left thinking about his actions. He knows he must change his ways and decides to talk to his friends. A great book for younger elementary kids as the simple text and simple illustrations will help kids focus on the message. As always, preview before sharing with your kids/students as Bully tell the goat to "Butt out" and that may not be appropriate for your audience.
