Benjamin Jay was a Bully by Emma M. Glover, with illustrations by K.C. Snider, is the kind of story parents and kids would love to cheer for and learn from. It answers the question: How do you deal with a bully in your own backyard?
In Benjamin Jay bird we have a bully most kids can relate to. Like other bullies, he steals food and pushes around those who are smaller. Do the small birds run and hide? Do they shake with fear? No, they’ve been counseled by Miss Gray Dove to do to others as you would have them do to you and live by the Golden Rule. Like her, they follow the peaceful way of the dove.
Poor Benjamin Jay. He’s used to being a troublemaker and the “biggest, baddest bird in the garden.” Not any more. Alone, he sadly sees the other birds together in a friendship circle with Miss Gray Dove. They beckon to him. He’s learning an important lesson: friendship satisfies more than the lonely power that comes from bullying. Wouldn’t you like to snuggle under Miss Gray Dove’s wing, too?
K.C. Snider’s beautiful illustrations will make you want to join in with the other birds. We marvel at the lovely flower garden. We revel with the sweet dancing birds, living the message of peace for all.
Thank you, Emma M. Glover and K.C. Snider, for this uplifting story about changing a bully into a friend. Yes, we want our own world to follow the Golden Rule and the way of the peaceful dove
