Join Aria, India, and their Angel Friends, as they deal with the difficult issue of bullying and smart ways to resolve an upsetting experience. Aria’s Angel Friend, Michael, gives her some great ideas like to hold her head high, walk away and sing… “I will smile and I will shine. Look at me, I’m just fine. I won’t let you bring me down. You won’t even see me frown. I will smile and I will shine. Look at me. I’m just fine.” Parents can use this approachable book to discuss bullying with their children in a comforting way.
