Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Mookey is a hairless monkey who has difficulty coping with his classmates' teasing. Then he learns to ask for help, accept himself and his differences, think positively, find good friends, use humor, ignore taunts and stay cool, and realizes that he can't control the teasing. The average-quality cartoon art is effective in illustrating the action, but not outstanding. The book includes advice for parents and teachers who want to help students deal with being teased or bullied. An effective tool for discussion.—Kathleen Pavin, Purdy Elementary School Library, Fort Atkinson, WI

Format: Hardcover
Mookey the Monkey Gets Over Being Teased was a great disappointment. If you are looking for some practical help for your elementary school-aged child, this is unlikely to do it. It just presents sententious tripe that parents have been telling kids forever. What Lonczak presents is true enough only it doesn't really help kids who are chronically teased. This might be helpful for Kindergarteners and pre-schoolers who could just take the advice at face value. If you want good, practical help for kids being teased or bullied in real life situations where the superficial platitudes won't work, get the book They Call Me Chicken: A Story of Courage by John Caporale, a psychologist. This book is for 3rd-6th graders and doesn't try to teach kids to stop others from teasing and bullying when they can't, but instead teaches kids how to cope with it in a manner where they can truly maintain their self-esteem. And what's more, it shows kids how to cope with all types of bullying situations, from the classic beat-you-up type to the more subtle manipulative coercion. This book should be in every elementary school classroom in the country. You can find it right here on Amazon.com.

Format: Hardcover
This book offers some practical strategies to help kids deflect or deal with teasing. With an age target of 4-8, it isn't meant to help kids who are being targeted and bullied persistantly, but it does help kids handle occasional teasing using effective strategies for the younger set. This book was used in my son's social skills group, and he really enjoyed the story. I think it leads to the obvious conversations you can have with your child "How do you think Mookey felt? What would you do if someone said that to you?" and models asking adults and friends for advice when you have a problem that you aren't sure how to handle. Good book for your under 8 that is upset by or having difficulty with teasing.
