Bought this book for my 5 year old to educate him on bullying, ended up getting a lot more out of it! The main character is forced to learn how to handle insults, etc. because the bullying occurs in her own home, with her older brother as the aggressor. The story is unique in that it gives kids some GREAT strategies for dealing with bullies. We had fun practicing the techniques with each other.. and although they're meant to address bullies, these same techniques are all around confidence boosters that every child should learn. This story is great for dealing with bullying, sibling rivalry, and facing ones fears head on. Love the story, the message, the pictures.. everything!

As a mental health practitioner, and a child advocate, I am thrilled to have this book on my office shelf. It is one of the tools every family or child therapist ought to have at their fingertips. Childhood bullying can be interrupted, even prevented, with this powerful resource. It sparks the imagination of the reader, promoting original problem-solving skills. The creative use of metaphor gives young minds a visual way to practice the skills of assertiveness and self-empowerment. It is my favorite "anti-bullying" book. I reach for it any time a young person tells me they are struggling, either as a target or a bully themselves.

The beautiful thing about Lessons From a Rubber Duck is that it doesn't give platitudes like, "Just ignore him," in regards to dealing with a bully. Instead the book outlines funny, endearing, and empowering techniques of HOW to stand up to bullies!

This is a must have for every teacher or parent of an elementary school aged child. When I taught it was very hard to find a book that wasn't overtly childish or teachy or cheesy on how to handle bullying. Most of it was "tell a teacher" or "tell a parent" and while that's true, kids tune it out and those people are never around when it takes place. This is a great tool to help kids realize it happens to not just them, as well as how to handle it in a way to keep it from happening and keep their dignity in tact as well.
