A. Blob on a Bus

A. Blob on a Bus by LA KefalosTrapped inside a bus with a bullying pile of goo, what will the kids of Lincoln Elementary School do? The sticky, purple bully, A. Blob, is back in this masterfully illustrated follow-up to This is A. Blob, and it seems it still hasn’t learned that being mean won’t make friends stick. As A. Blob pokes, prods, and pesters, it appears the children will never be able to ride the bus in peace; that is, until one brave girl decides to take a stand. Suitable for children ages 4-8, this picture book encourages readers to take action against bullying and shows how one act of bravery can change everything–maybe even A. Blob. Each book comes with a FREE material discussion guide for parents and teachers. This resource is filled with age-appropriate discussion questions, lesson plans, and fun crafts to help young readers strengthen social-emotional skills, build empathy, and become upstanders!

 

A. Blob on a Bus is now available for purchase on Amazon.com. With each purchase, you also receive a FREE download of the accompanying material discussion guide with lesson plans, craft, and discussion questions to guide conversations and help young readers learn to be upstanders.
