A Girl Named Earle is a story destined to create discussion amongst teachers and students, parents, and children. What is the best way to deal with bullies? How would you react if someone said you had a boy’s name? Author Anne Toole has written a story about the controversial topic of bullying. How should a girl named Earle react when other students chide her about having a “boy’s name?” There are lots of names shared by both genders like Kim, Terry, and Chris. How should children react when other students tease them? Should we shove them or knock them down? Should we threaten them with physical violence? Should we get angry and yell? How should children behave when teased or bullied?
A Girl Named Earle is a “must-have book” for every school, public, and home library. This book should be on every shelf to read and encourage discussion about emotions, bullying, and how to deal with problems at school or at home. Author Anne Toole has written another thoughtful story with a subtle message, similar to her previous book, Shy Ty. Written in rhyme, this story demonstrates how one girl deals with teasing at school. Hopefully, this interesting story will encourage conversation on how children can handle problems or teasing at school or at home. Beautiful, colorful illustrations fill one side of the book, with the story on the opposite page. Illustrator Richa Kinra has drawn wonderful artwork that will invite children into the book and keep them interested to finish reading it. An interesting story with a vital message.
