About Super Luke Faces His Bully
My review: Originally, I had planned on my daughter being the one to read and review the book, but she is swamped with school and tests. So dear old mom picked it up and loved it! I give it five stars with no hesitation whatsoever. This is my first time reading anything about the Gigglehearts, and I was quite pleased with the wonderful way that the Bible was woven into every part of the story. In fact, each chapter begins with at least one Scripture verse.
I am a teacher, and I have seen children bullied. Even closer to home, this is the first year since my daughter began school (she is in third grade) that she has not been bullied. My daughter has even been sexually harassed. This is a real problem for our kids today, and this is a book that teaches the Biblical way to deal with bullies. Who would dream of being told to love your enemies and pray for them? Granted, everything works out for Luke in this book (always nice to read a happy ending in a kids book), but the principles are key. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
The author and illustrator work extremely well together. The illustrations fit so well with the story being told. Sometimes they even extended the story and carried it along. I loved it, and I would definitely love to read even more by the Gigglehearts. I have told my daughter that this required reading this summer! I know she will enjoy it as much as I did. And she will identify with Type A Luke (she is also type A). Why do I think Luke is Type A? Read the book, and I think you will see why!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated in any way, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.Interested in subscribing to all my site's updates? Subscribe below!
