I read this book to my small children, 4,6, and7, and they loved it. They actually took them to school to show their teachers. There are very few books on a child's level that help with "bullying", even thou the problem is so huge. This book was done in a fun fashion, and encouraged my kids to ask questions. I recommend this book to any parent, I especially believe it should be in our school libraries. Buy it, you will not be sorry!

What a treat; this book is a fun read for kids, but also delivers great messages and information. Any person, of any age, would benefit from reading this book, and it has already become an invaluable resource in our home. The author has even included simple lists at the back of the book that cover all areas of bullying: Reporting a Bully, Standing Strong, Things to Say to a Bully, and Tips for Good Friendships. This is not your ordinary book; a fun read and resource all in one. Highly recommend.

The Hero in Me is written so kids of all ages can read it or be read to over and over again. The tips for bullys and heros are so helpful at the end of the book! This should be a standard in all grade schools today. I bought 4 copies so all the kids in our family are covered! Thank you, Sue Fitzsimonds for a very timely book on a difficult, but so important topic.

I was very happy with this book. I think it is wonderful for 5 to maybe 9 year olds. However, there is still very sound advice to be gleaned from this book by 10, 11 and 12 year olds. The older children need to look past the use of rhyme in the book. The situations depicted, the feelings expressed and the best ways to handle different types of bullies are still there in the book. They just have to look beyond the rhyme. Also, the sugesstions given on the last two pages of the book are "spot on" and very helpful to all ages.

This is a wonderful book that teaches children how to be assertive in bullying situations. It aligns very nicely with the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program that we have in our school this year. The title is even perfect for our HERO theme- Helping Everyone Respect Others. As a School Counselor, I love this book and I'm sure it will be used in many classrooms K-6.
