I was looking for a book about bullying for my granddaughter when I came upon “Inner Giant” by Frank Letras. Bullying has become so prevalent in our society and has touched so many lives that I wanted to prepare her for the possibility it could happen to her. This is actually a collection of short stories, poetry, pictures, and so much more. The best part is that it is set up for adults and children in an easily identifiable format. I was amazed at the versatility of the information included. There were stories I could share with my 8-year old granddaughter as well as others appropriate for my 15-year old grandson. Some of the stories and art are amusing others very serious. With an easy to follow color coded guide I could choose what to share with either child based on their age and their experience. Whether your family is being impacted by bullying or you are just a concerned parent or grandparent, teacher or friend, this is an excellent way to introduce a child to the possible perils they might face. It’s also a wonderful way to open up a dialogue with a child who might be reticent to discuss being bullied. I am so glad I found this book! Brilliant!
