This book is all about standing up for oneself. Trusty the Sea Turtle encourages and teaches his friends how to stand up for themselves when they are being bullied and/or picked on by the other sea creatures. The back of the book has 10 tips for children to remember to aid them in developing upstander skills. It also provides information on sea turtles...for those students who like nature, etc. The only downside is that some readers may deem the pages bright and busy, also the font may be difficult to read at times. So, for those students who may be easily distracted by these features this book may not be for them. All and all, this is a great teaching tool.
Trusty becomes an Upstander!
