1. Ignore Grant.
2. Try being friendly to him.
3. Make a joke out of it.
Thankfully, author Teresa Bateman shows that there's no magic solution to the problem of bullies--none of these methods works. When the parents get into the picture, Dad alerts Lotty's teacher to the problem, and this is a good first step. However, Lotty recognizes that Grants does the bulk of his teasing when adults are NOT around. So she devises a clever plan: She devises a self help "Bully Blockers Club," whose members look out for each other when bully Grant attacks. THey discover that there's strength in numbers, and that adults are quicker to be on the alert when kids work together to point out common problems: "Kids spoke up when they saw something wrong and reached out to anyone who looked lonely" "....The adults were watching too, at lunchtime and at recess and in the halls.

Since leaving preschool, my son has grown in confidence and is better prepared to deal with a bully situation. He still enjoys this wonderful book and reads it frequently because of the satisfying and joyful ending.
I think this is a wonderful book for teaching students about bullying. It gives some good tips about what a person should do if they are being bullied (i.e. ignore the bully, tell them to stop, tell an adult). It also shows how bullying makes other people feel. I would highly recommend this book for students in grades K-2. Not only does it teach about bullying, but it is also a good book to teach about the literary elements of conflict, resolution, and theme. The illustrations in this book are wonderful and engaging as well.
