In The Juice Box Bully, Maria’s second children’s book, the children of Mr. Peltzers class experience a bully, the new kid in school, but refuse to be bystanders. Instead the class has made a pact to stand together and stop bullying. Their courage and willingness to stand up for what’s write makes school more fun as well as a safer and better place for everyone.

This is a wonderful book! I would love to see it in the hands of elementary school students everywhere. It is practical and makes sense. If collectively we can stop bullying at a young age, it would have a ripple effect and possibly change the course of lives as they grow and move onto high school and later their lives as adults. The book has a simple message that helps explain bullying and what being a bystander is. It also shows how working together is a wonderful tool. No one likes a bully and school is much more enjoyable when the pressures and fears of a bully are gone.

I highly recommend this book for anyone with children, specifically those in elementary school. It is a wonderful resource that encourages children to make good choices and be aware of others feelings. It promotes kind Behavior as acceptable and unkind behavior as something that should not be accepted or rewarded by others. I really enjoyed reading this book and discussing the topic with my children. They intern enjoyed the story and had plenty of questions to ask. It’s a book worth the money spent!
