If Only I Could Ignore You

61p5rxbl-fl1This is a wonderful picture book for kids about how to like themselves and include everyone.

This story opens with a little boy who loves waking up in the morning because his Mom kisses and tickles him. He also loves having breakfast with his dad and brother. But as the average day starts and he has to go to school he becomes unhappy.

He loves school, and he wants to learn. But his efforts are stifled because a kid makes fun of him. If only he could ignore him.

He is not the only target of this bully, other kids are picked on as well.

During recess time the kids who are picked on by the bully, are playing together. They don’t care that their clothes don’t fit right or if someone is chubby or don’t fit into the mold of the bully.

As the kids are laughing and playing with one another they notice the bully sitting alone looking sad, the kids invite him to play with them.

This is a great picture book with a very important message. We are all beautiful, but in our own unique way, and there’s always room for another friend.
