Names and Name Calling...

Brad Learns How to Take a Bite Out of Meanness

by Susan Bowman (2013, YouthLight, 14.95)

This colorfully illustrated story introduces Brad, an unusual shark, who doesn’t "fit in" with the other sharks. He is teased and called names by other sea creatures because he doesn’t fit the reputation of being a shark. So he tries to not hang around the other sharks, hoping this will make a difference. But the teasing continues. He finally turns to his only friend Kia, a humpback whale, who tells him that he should not try to change who he is just to have friends. Color. Grades K-5. [8.5” x 11”...38 pages]

My Name Is Elizabeth!

by Annika Dunklee (2011, Kids Can Press, 14.95/hardback)

Meet Elizabeth. She's got an excellent pet duck, a loving granddad and a first name that's just awesome. After all, she's got a queen named after her! So she's really not amused when people insist on using nicknames like "Lizzy" and "Beth." She bears her frustration in silence until an otherwise ordinary autumn day, when she discovers her power to change things once and for all. In the process, Elizabeth learns about communication and respect--and their roles in building better relationships with family and friends. Color. Grades K-3. [9” x 9”...24 pages]

Mr. Lincoln's Way

by Patricia Polacco (2001, Philomel, 17.99/hardback)

Mr. Lincoln, the principal, knows that "Mean Gene" isn't really bad—he's just repeating racist things he's heard at home. Mr. Lincoln helps free the boy from intolerance, just as Eugene finds a way to free the baby ducklings and their parents from the atrium so they can reach the pond outside. Color. Grades 1-4. [8.5” x 11”...40 pages]

The Hurt

by Teddi Doleski (1983, Paulist Press, 7.95)

When his best friend Gabriel calls him a name, Justin reacts by going home to his room and nursing his “hurt.” As he adds even more hurts to it, the “hurt” grows bigger and bigger. Through sharing his feelings, the boy is finally able to let the “hurt” go. A multi-use counseling classic. Grades K-5. [7” x 8.5”...30 pages]


Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon

by Pat Lovell (2001, Putnam, 16.99/hardback)

When Molly Lou has to start in a new school, Ronald Durkin makes fun of her height and her buck teeth. But Molly has indomitable self-esteem, which she learned from her grandma, and knows just how to put Ronald in his place. Color. Grades K-3. [9” x 9”...32 pages]


by Kevin Henkes (1991, Mulberry Books, 6.99)

Chrysanthemum always thought her name was absolutely perfect. That is, until her new friends at school make “flower jokes” at her expense, Chrysanthemum wilts. And nothing gets any better—until the students meet their new music teacher, Mrs. Delphinium Twinkle. Color. Grades K-3. [8” x 10”...30 pages]
