Stuttering Stan Takes a Stand by Artie Knapp

Teased and bullied about his stuttering, Stanley the squirrel refuses to let on that his feelings are being hurt, until one day he learns an important lesson from a new friend. The book is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your local bookstore.

My Review: I have review a lot of books that talks about bullying and this story is no different. It’s about a stuttering squirrel named Stanley and his courage to stand up to a mean nasty raccoon named Raker who finds joy in bullying others. This is a must read for every child who stutter.

 Pages: 32

  9. I love books that have a lesson in them. The kids really do connect with the characters. Bullying is a big problem in our schools and any way to address this in a way the kids can identify with is helpful.
