Adventures at Walnut Grove: A Lesson about Teasing Review & Giveaway

Adventures at Walnut Grove Book

Adventures at Walnut Grove written by Dana Lehman is a great book about teasing! She wrote it soon after a school shooting. It’s never to early to teach our kids the importance about treating others the way you would like to be treated. My eldest girl loves to call her little sister names and she in turn likes to make scary noises to her big sister.

When I find them teasing each other I grab the book and we have a sit down to go over it. Right now, my girls are 5 and 3. There are pictures through out this book and what kid does not like pictures?

So for now we are going by the pictures and they tell me just by looking at the pictures what the story is about. They are pretty close just by looking at the pictures!! I will be using this book to teach my eldest girl to learn how to read!!! The sentences are simple and she knows her letter sounds.

A quick synopsis of this book! 

Sammy is a squirrel and he is different from amongest all the other squirrels. What made Sammy different? It was because he had eyes like a raccoon. This made him special among his friends, but others didn’t think that Sammy was special and so they teased him. You will have to read the book to your kids to find out who calls Sammy “raccoon eyes!”

This book received the Mom’s Choice Awards! 

Head on over to Lehman Publishing and look under “Resources” and you will find lesson plans for Adventures of Walnut Grove! You can also watch the Adventures of Walnut Grove book trailer! Disclaimer: I was provided with all three books in the series for my review and one of each book to giveaway over the next 3 weeks. No other compensation was received.

I was teased by a boy in my neighborhood about my glasses. My sister teased me at home about everything from my clothes to anything else she could think of. My step-mother teased me about not knowing about shaving my legs when I was 11, not knowing some of my homework, my shoes and anything else she could think of.

Absolutely, I was teased. I had an older sister and a mean older bully at school. Those were horrible days!

I was constantly teased growing up, not usually by my brothers or sister, but by other kids. I also know that I did my fair share of teasing, too, but not usually to be mean, more to be funny. I didn’t know that funny to me wasn’t funny to someone else. I also found that the more reaction kids get from teasing the more they tease. Attention is attention even if its negative attention.

I was teased by a couple of boys in my neighborhood when I was growing up because my family was big and we didn’t have nice things, just what we needed, even though they had less than us. I think though that it made me who I am today. I am happy with whatever I have no matter how much or how little and I am always willing to give to people that need something more than I do. I hope that our daughter will do the same because that is what we have been teaching her since she was born.

As a child I think everyone teased others and were teased themselves, but it was not carried to the extremes as it is today. Dana does excellent job capturing this concept in a way that makes it easy to discuss with your children. They are great kids books!

I was teased throughout school for being short and for the most part quiet.

I was teased and I also did some teasing. I agree with Katie B. I don’t think that the teasing or bullying was any where near what it is today but none-the-less it’s not right in any case.

I was teased so bad when I was younger.
