The absolutely one-of-a-kind Jennifer Sattler will be here at the store for a fun-filled, family-friendly event on Saturday, August 11 at 11 AM. Jennifer will read her new book, BULLY, which is about a selfish bullfrog who takes over a lily pond ... until the other residents decide to unite and take action. The illustrations are comical and inspiring, and School Library Journal beams that BULLY is "a good read-aloud choice to reinforce lessons about kindness, perfect for one-on-one or group sharing." Come join us!
ABOUT THE BOOK: Bully the bullfrog lives in a pond full of lilies. The flowers are beautiful, fragrant, and enjoyed by the many other creatures that also inhabit the pond. The pond is a very pleasant place to live. Or it should be. Instead, Bully decides that only he should be able to enjoy the beautiful lilies. He demands that the other inhabitants of the pond leave. And once Bully has the flowers to himself, his selfish behavior almost destroys them. Can anyone stop Bully and his bullying ways? As it turns out, the answer is YES! Using humor and whimsy, author-illustrator Jennifer Sattler masterfully shows young readers that standing up together can make all the difference in the world.
