This book was great for my daughter and I to read together. She is in the first grade. They have been talking a lot at school about bullies so this was a great way to start a conversation at home about what they were talking about at school. I like that the book shows how Bart feels about being bullied and how he feels like he is shrinking. We also liked how the kids stood up to the bully together. The questions at the back were perfect for helping start a frank discussion with my children.
