Jack has always been a very happy little boy.

But when he starts kindergarten, he discovers he is different than the others. For the very first time, he is bullied—Happy Jack suddenly becomes Sad Jack.

What should Jack do? Should he tell an adult? His parents? Would his teacher or principal understand? What can they do to help?

As parents, we want certain things for our kids. Mainly, we want them to be happy. Can today’s kids celebrate their differences, or are they doomed to fight over them like generations before?

Jack’s school community learns an important lesson as attorney/author Mark M. Bello presents Jack’s compelling story in rhyme, beautifully and dramatically illustrated by Melinda Falgoust:

“People are different in color, shape, size.

Ears, noses, mouths, and different shaped eyes.

Different races, and genders—more, too.

Christian or Buddhist, or Muslim or Jew.

But there’s one thing in common we all have in this place.

We are all valued members of this human race.”

 

Happy Jack Sad Jack: A Bullying Story is a must read for all children and
one your child will never forget.
