Book Review: Kitty Conquers the Big Bully
Kitty Conquers the Big Bully
KayeC Jones has done it again, I love this children's book. This author has officially become a must have for me. She writes the most incredible children's books that are thought-provoking while also being age appropriate. What surprised me the most about this book is how honest it was. Every child at some point has dealt with a bully or two.
The book follows a cute little girl named kitty, she has a major problem, though. There is this huge bully that is so mean to her. He isn't kind at all, and he hurts her feelings. The ending is wonderful and the boys loved learning about how to deal with things.
The story is set up with rhythms and they are really easy to read. I did find a couple of them were awkward and challenging to read aloud. Although most words the kids understood without my help. The text was clear and easy to read. I loved that the letter "i" is dotted with a heart, it helps the story be a little more relatable to little girls.
I loved all the girl power, but don't be afraid to share this book with little boys either.
As a parent or teacher you might ask, how do you handle these situations? That's where these books come in, it is a great way to start a conversation with a child. I believe that this is a must have in any home or classroom.
This book will teach your child positive coping skills. That their feelings are valid. It also inspires children to stand up for themselves.

Kitty finally goes face-to-face with the biggest bully who declares to her that girls can't do anything but "clean and bake cookies". Instead of flourishing fists and sinking to the bully's level, she uses her wits and thinks her way out of the situation.
This wonderful story teaches everyone, not only girls, to believe in themselves and not to doubt their dreams and wishes, no matter what those dreams and wishes happen to be
