Warner's fourth EllRay Jakes book offers a relatable, non-scary view of bullying among very young children and shows how kids react to mean behavior. Adults are often surprised to learn how early bullying can start, but kids know that even at preschool, friends can turn on each other and gang up on other children. Kids will relate to Alfie and EllRay, learn about concepts of personal pride and character, and enjoy the illustrations by Brian Biggs. This is a caring story that shows a loving family, realistic kids, and the heartwarming loyalty 8-year-old EllRay feels for his little sister.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
