Book Review/Giveaway: Alex and Tony Help Stop Bullying. Ends March 15th
Alex and Tony Help Stop Bullying by Antonee Boykin and illustrated by Dia Reddo
About the Book: One day during recess, twin brothers Alex and Tony see their friend EJ standing alone and looking very sad. After talking to him, they find out that EJ isn’t playing because he was told he couldn’t, by a bully named Manny in his class. EJ tells Alex and Tony that Manny has been bothering him for quite some time and he’s afraid. At home, the siblings discuss EJ’s problem with their parents and learn all about bullying. Alex and Tony are worried about their friend and realize that it’s their responsibility to help.
My Review: This is an interesting topic that children and parents can relate too. After Alex and Tony found EJ standing alone in the gym and had a sad look on his face, they decided to find out what was wrong. EJ explained to them that their school mate Manny told him not to play with anybody. Manny bothered him all the time and he wish he didn’t even have to come to school.
Later that day Alex and Tony asked their parent why are some kids so mean? They told them about EJ and Manny. Their parent explained to them that bullying is wrong and that the only way to help is to report the bully.
Please note, If you or someone is been bullied you should talk to someone you trust. Children have the power to reduce bullying in schools by speaking up.
This is a great book for parents to read to their children and for teachers to share with their students, to educate them about bullies and the signs of bullying.
The art works by Dia Reddo helps tell the story. I highly recommend this book in all school.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. Mymcbooks is a part of Memorable Children Books & Gifts. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So our goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I decided to start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. I intend to continue with this program to help parents.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away 500 books a year.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal for 2012 is to giveaway 300 books to children.
