School provides many challenges to young children and one such challenge is understanding bullies. This book provides an excellent learning tool to discuss bullying with children in a way that positions them to better cope with bullies, while exploring non violent approaches to deal with the issue. “SuperGoldfish” stands up for the other fish in their tank against mean Tiger Barb. He uses his superpowers—which turn out to be what everyone has— to win over the troubled Tiger Barb, and in the end, helps Tiger Barb become a friend of the fish community.
At the 4–8-year-old level the child can understand how to deal with bullies. In this case, even bullies need love. Most importantly, students learn that hatred is not the way to face evil.
The information pages at the end of the book provide additional learning opportunities for the child. Fun ‘Fish Facts’ for aquariums and oceans help the child learn about different environments for fish and explains why some fish require different water temperatures and environments. These pages are meant as a starting point to inspire the child to learn more about fish and the other creatures that live in our water ways and oceans.
