Teasing happens to lots and lots (and lots!) of kids. Every day. Sometimes that teasing can be fun, but sometimes it hurts. Ease the Tease helps young readers recognize what hurtful teasing sounds and feels like and offers a toolkit for dealing with teasing. How many ways can children ease the tease? Inside the book, readers will find not one, not two, but ten helpful ways to ease the tease: two ways using pure brainpower; three ways to try right away; and four ways with the element of surprise. Finally, they can learn one way with the help of a grown-up (because sometimes asking for help is the right thing to do). Children can try out these practical and memorable strategies, practice them, and team up with others to ease the tease. Includes a glossary of terms at the back of the book to equip and empower children with the vocabulary they need. Paperback by Judy S. Freeman. 84 pages. Designed to interest ages 6-9; reading level is grade 3.
