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.

Text:  5 Buckeye leaves
Illustrations:  4 Buckeye leaves
