Details: Product Description Silver Medal, Moonbeam Children's Book Awards In recent years, the media, educators, and researchers have paid increased attention to the epidemic of childhood bullying in an effort to reduce and prevent bullying behaviors. A modern twist on the classic tale, Big Red and the Little Bitty Wolf demonstrates that sometimes an unexpected solution to being bullied can have surprising success. Little Bitty Wolf has a big problem. He used to love to walk to school at Pine Cone Elementary. Until Big Red Riding Hood moves into town. Big Red isn't just big, she is mean. And she loves nothing more than teasing, taunting, and terrorizing Little Bitty. What is a wolf to do? Little Bitty talks to his parents and tries lots of different ideas to stop the bullying. But in the end, it takes something unexpected to get Big Red to stop! Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers with warning signs to look out for that may indicate a child is involved in bullying, and steps to take to improve the situation — whether your child is the victim, perpetrator, or a bystander. From School Library Journal PreS-Gr 1—This reimagined "Little Red Riding Hood" uses a role reversal to address the topic of bullying. While taking the path through the woods to school, Little Bitty Wolf comes across a big, bad girl: Big Red. Each day, while Big Red teases, taunts, and terrorizes Little Bitty, the little wolf tries his hardest not to whine or to whimper. Little Bitty asks his parents what to do, but nothing helps his situation. After his teacher recognizes something is upsetting Little Bitty, she sends him to Mr. Know-It-Owl, the school counselor. Know-It-Owl's advice is to try something "unexpected." Little Bitty Wolf decides to simply smile at Big Red the next time she taunts him. The guidance helps, and Little Bitty finds himself feeling "a whole lot better" by the end of the story. While this seemingly simple solution may not be as painless and positive in reality as it is in this tale, the story line does provide children with a constructive and encouraging tool against bullying. The text's nonintimidating, gentle tone, paired with playful, bright, and inviting illustrations, is certain to inspire a more in-depth discussion in the classroom or during one-on-one sharing about bullying. Included at the end of the book is a note to parents and caregivers from a school psychologist, filled with information on how to handle situations when a child may be a victim, perpetrator, or witness to bullying. VERDICT Caregivers and educators will appreciate the constructive message that this fractured fairy tale has to offer on the subject of bullying.—Brianne Colombo, Pequannock Township Public Library, NJ Review Silver Medal, Moonbeam Children's Book Awards "This is a perfect topic for the beginning of the school year and a way to engage students in a discussion about how they treat each other! Big Red and the Little Bitty Wolf is an excellent resource for teaching children good emotional techniques and to stand up for what is right."—Children's Books Heal "The text's nonintimidating, gentle tone, paired with playful, bright, and inviting illustrations, is certain to inspire a more in-depth discussion in the classroom or during one-on-one sharing about bullying…Caregivers and educators will appreciate the constructive message that this fractured fairy tale has to offer on the subject of bullying."—School Library Journal "Children will identify with the relentless teasing in this very original fairy tale. Little Bitty Wolf is an adorable  character with heart and determination. Kids will cheer for this little wolf as he attempts to reason and outsmart Big Red in order to get her to stop.  Jennifer Zivoin’s illustrations are richly textured, beautiful, lively and powerful!  The expressions on the faces of Big Red and Little Bitty are priceless."—Children's Books Heal Book Description A modern twist on the classic tale, Big Red and the
