This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Billy is a child entering young adulthood who is trying to make sense of his environment. What underlies Billy's journey, as with all children, are the values he will adopt. Values provide us with the basis upon which we assess the usefulness of what we are told, and how to react to situations we experience. In short, they give us tools we need to forge a path through life. The Life Lessons Series was written to help children form positive values that will serve them at this stage in their lives. By using the power of traditional storytelling to illustrate, guide and shape their understanding in a safe environment, this book will aid your child's understanding of bullying. Unfortunately, bullying is a major problem for children today, but it is also part of learning to stand up for oneself. In this story, Billy is looking forward to a big birthday. However, the local bullies hear he has been given a twenty-pound note as a present and challenge him to hand it over. Billy realises he cannot fight the gang, so he has to agree to their demands. At first, Billy does not dare tell a grown-up, as he feels guilty about losing it. Billy and his friend Ant try to hatch a plan to get it back. But it's not until Maxine, Ant's sister, hears about the problem that she realises an adult needs to be involved. Grandad, who does party magic, is the ideal person to retrieve it. Disarming a bully is the best way to deal with them. You cannot rid the world of bullies, but you can do something about the way you deal with them. In the home this book can act as an ice breaker allowing parents /guardians /grandparents to raise the subject of bullying with their child. For teachers it is suitable for KS 2, PSHE classes. The book is aimed at independent readers from 8 years onwards. For those with less developed reading skills each chapter is illustrated to help with visualisation.
