Hello! I’ve something a bit different on Joyful Antidotes today – a children’s book. No, don’t click away just yet! This is one you are going to want to pick up for any children in your life.
Ginormous Jo’s Silly Bullies by S.C Cunningham allows children and adults alike to follow along on the adventures of Ginormous Jo and her dog friends as they learn to face bullies in her dog neighborhood. When Ginormous Jo notices that her friend Muttley is very down. He doesn’t seem to want to do their normal play activities. Jo is worried, and finally gets Muttley to bravely tell her why he won’t go outside. The dogs down the street are bullying Muttley.
Will Muttley stand up to them? Or will it take some help from his friend Jo first?
I don’t have children of my own but I still love to promote children’s books here on Joyful Antidotes. A love of books from an early age shaped me into who I am and I don’t know what I would do without my escape today.
I choose this book from the Ginormous series because it has an incredibly important message. Two messages actually: how to be a good friend and the importance of telling others if you are being bullied.
Ginormous Jo’s Silly Bullies has cuddly dogs as the main characters and beautiful water colours fill the pages. This makes the book more attractive for children, as well as an easy concept to understand. Therefore, the author does a great job in providing a way for parents to educate their children on important topics, and in a way that children will listen.
There are other books in the Ginormous series that I would like to get my hands on. Unless all you readers with children snatch up the copies before me (which you totally should).
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
