B2S Party 2011 - Prize #6!
Looking at the cover of this book you can almost tell that the Queen on the front of this book is a bully! Yes, Mean Jean is pretty mean. So mean that the kids let her rule the recess time and just try to stay out of her way. The author tells about the Queen in fun rhyming poetic form, "she'd push em and smoosh em, lollapaloosh em." Luckily the bullying situation is resolved because of one strong-willed , kind youngster named Katie Sue. When Katie Sue invites Mean Jean to jump rope with her, she is at first shocked but in the end the two are playing together happily and sharing the jump rope. This book shows that killing them with kindness is a great strategy to teach kids when dealing with the “mean.” Also this book shows that sometimes people can change too when you give them a chance! Bullies can become a friend.
