Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
The Helping Hands series of books is designed to help you guide your child through difficult times of learning and adjusting in his life (new baby, bullying, strangers etc.) Meant to be read by a parent to a child, the books also contain ten helpful tips at the end of each title by a child psychologist for parents - to help them know how best to support their child.

Thanks to our homeschooling experience our girls haven't had to face bullying (thank God for homeschooling), but since I was sent Matthew and the Bullies randomly to review, I thought I'd read it to my girls and see what they thought. While the main characters are boys, they really enjoyed the story about how Matthew struggled with bullying at school and how he (and very importantly - the adults in his life) worked together to solve the problem peacefully.

The artwork by Ian Cunliffe is cheerful and child-friendly, and while the story is a bit wordy, the fictional writing style keeps children engaged with the story - my girls have asked for repeat readings. What I appreciate the most is the emphasis on encouraging children to turn tot he adults in their lives for assistance, and the emphasis on not fighting back, but looking for a peaceful solution.
