I've been asked to review Ripple's Effect, a new children's book from Little Pickle Press by Shawn Achor and Amy Blankson. Illustrated by Cecelia Rebora.
Every parent, grandparent and teacher knows that in today's world educating children about bullies is a difficult task. Not only do we need to protect our little ones from bullies, but we need to teach them not to be a bully. Ripple's Effect does this beautifully. What child doesn't love dolphins and which one isn't fascinated by sharks? You don't have to live near the ocean in today's world for children to appreciate the magnificent of either one. Dolphins bring us joy just watching them frolic in the water while sharks elicit fear.
In Ripple's Effect we have the story of a happy and determined dolphin to take back the fish tank so everyone, even the bully shark, can have fun. Achor and Blankson weave this story into a stream of enjoyment your child will love first and relate to second. Teachers can use this story to help teach children about bullies and how to accept who they are despite what a bully may say and how to deal with a bully.
As a grandmother of two, five year olds, I've learned the importance of listening to them, teaching them in a manner that doesn't preach down to them, and encouraging them to be who they are without fear. I highly recommend you add Ripple's Effect to your home and school library so that your special little one can learn the lessons of Ripple's Effect.
