"Wow! Good story theme. I can't think of anything more important to elementary -aged children than peer relationships in creating a positive learning environment in school! I love how the story shows the important role adults play in conflict resolution situations between children. This story is an excellent discussion starter for any anti-bullying program for elementary schools"
