Sometimes Jokes Aren't Funny What to Do About Hidden Bullying by Amanda F. Doering


Sometimes Jokes Aren't Funny What to Do About Hidden Bullying by Amanda F. Doering

Jamie, Terry, and Sydney have been going to Camp Barkley every summer since they were puppies. But when a new dog named Taylor joins their cabin, Taylor's mean jokes make Jamie feel left out and picked on. Young readers watch Jamie struggle with Taylor's jokes and learn safe ways to make it stop. Sensitive illustrations of gender-neutral animal characters help all children relate to the issue of covert, or indirect, bullying.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo
