Sometimes a child, in this case Mandy, might not really know that they have turned into a bully. A child might have some basic leadership skills that has resulted in her having friends that seem to automatically follow and accept what she says. Sometimes that is based upon their beauty, or that they wear the right clothes... Once Mandy was deemed a leader, she proclaimed herself the coolest kids in school. The problem was that she immediately started placing herself as the model upon which "cool kids" were accepted to be her friends.
Kayla was somewhat of an activist--if Mandy didn't change, she would counter her actions with her own. She formed a "Cool Kids Club" for everybody that Mandy had declared uncool! Hey, a very cool idea in my opinion! Kayla was also a leader, but that came because she was always nice and tried to help people. And she even tried to help Mandy, but Mandy just wouldn't listen...
But...was it too late... According to her own rules, Mandy was about to become "uncool!"
The illustrations in the book are line drawings, colored, which I thought matched the story line, since Kayla was into art as well. You will meet most of the main characters in pictures throughout the 62-page book. The writing is of particular interest since the author has matched the style of talking to age-appropriate children who will probably be reading the book themselves!
O'Malley has actually slid in a great lesson, while providing a great story that most children will immediately relate to for one thing or another... Mandy quite easily decided what made a child "cool," including height, whether they wore glasses, and other simply silly things that hurt when you're the brunt of being declared uncool! By simply being Kayla, as she was, the story comes full circle with everybody, including me, quite satisfied!
Better check it out and find out who the really cool kids are! Highly recommended...
Cool Kids Wear Glasses is a wonderful book for youngsters who may be just getting into chapter books. The chapters are short, yet packed with just the right amount of engaging elements to keep kids reading.
This book is certainly based on a timely subject. How many children know at least one school bully? I appreciated the way the author had Mandy gradually decide whether or not what she’s doing is bullying, since she wasn’t looking at it from the perspective of the uncool kids until she herself was in the same position. I think most children can relate to this. It definitely made Mandy a more likable character.
This would make a great book to use as a way to introduce bullying to grade-schoolers. It’s an excellent jumping off point to begin an open dialogue with kids. I highly recommend it!
When Mandy learns that she might need glasses, she is so terrified that she brings her stuffed bear with her to the eye doctor. She is mortified when Yumi walks into the office and sees her trying on glasses. Things get worse when Kayla forms her own Cool Kids Club dedicated to standing up for kids who celebrate their differences. Mandy is no longer "cool"; Tasha is the leader of the in crowd. Now that the shoe is on the other foot for Mandy, she is not so sure who Is really cool.
Targeted for children in first to fourth grade, I think that those in grades three and up can handle the text independently. I feel the book makes a good read aloud for classroom discussions on bullying based on appearance.
This book is an excellent tool for parents to teach their children tolerance and that people may have "differences" but that they have feelings, too. It is also a book that will open the door to discussions about bullying, even if it is unintentional. This early reader chapter book is intended for ages 6 to 9.
