An excerpt of Book Two of the Sue Series books for children, parents and carers (based on the simple yet fun process I used at home with my very young sons) introduces the character Sue and her story of what being BRAVE, SMART and STRONG really means as she deals with a bullying situation and helps young children learn the importance of knowing that they REALLY can be ‘BIG’ and make a positive difference, through:
• Story Time – Sue’s exciting adventure is told through 12 pages of rhyming couplets and colour illustrations young children can relate to, enhancing the learning-to-read process.
• Preparation Guidelines – vital information for helping adults teach and help prepare very young children to know how to identify and deal with a bullying situation and to understand the reasons why they must do so.
• Practical Exercises – necessary, step-by-step guidelines for teaching children what they need to know so they are able to take the physical steps for REALLY taking action.
• Play-acting – crucial role-playing steps (to use in a drama lesson or monthly safety drill at home or school) to help children take action and stay calm in a bullying situation and allowing a parent, carer or teacher to know if a child can REALLY take action and understand what they have been taught throughout the book.
• Worksheets – 30 pages of fun activities to reinforce what children have been taught, such as the number to call; a child’s name, address and phone number; and what it means to be BRAVE, SMART and STRONG (just to name a few) through letters and numbers; spelling and vocabulary; shapes and colours; writing and drawing; sorting and matching.
• Check List – 10 detailed checking points for the person teaching the children the steps to be certain each child knows exactly what action to take and so they are confident knowing each child can remember and follow through each step and take action quickly and effectively.
• Award – Present a personalised, laminated award (included) when you know that all of the above comes easily to a child.
