ESSEX, Mo. (PRWEB) September 07, 2017
As a child, Carolyn Morgan Abbott was a victim of bullying for her extreme curly hair and her wearing of eyeglasses. She also believes that bullying is on the rise and needs to be addressed in early childhood. With this, Abbott brings forward “The Little Excavator” (published by WestBow Press), an anti-bullying book designed to teach children to have compassion for others that may be different from them.
“Children are committing suicide at an alarming rate. If we can teach them to have compassion for others while they are young, perhaps we can save our children,” says Abbott. “The Little Excavator” educates children how someone feels while being bullied. The book also encourages acceptance of others who are different from themselves.
When asked what she wants readers to take away from her book, Abbott answers, “I would love for children to grow up realizing that there are all kinds of people and other kids that are of different sizes, personalities, looks, etc. We can all enjoy life together and have many friends.”
An excerpt from the book:
“You saved the day Little Bill!” Terrifying Tim and Big John hung their booms low. “We are very sorry for treating you so mean! for bullying you! we were wrong! would you please forgive us? we would like to be friends”
