Kevin Henkes, A weekend with Wendell, May 24, 1995, Greenwillow Books
The book addresses Bullying
Wendell's parents drop him off to spend the weekend at Sophie's. Wendell is a bossy child while playing house he plays the mother, the father, and the children. Sophie played the dog. While playing bakery, Wendell got to be the baker while Sophie was the sweet roll. In all the games Wendell had the best roles while Sophie took the not so exciting parts. Sophie could not wait for the weekend to be over and for Wendell to leave. When Wendell gives Sophie a new hairdo with shaving cream, it marked the last straw. Sophie decides to make up a game that rendered Wendell speechless and friendship won the day (Henkes, 1995).
Have the children read the story out loud in a sequence with each kid participating. Have a question and answer session where the children answer the following questions; How should we treat our friends? What is the best way to react to bullying?
In groups of five have the children act out situations of bullying based on personal experience and about the story of Wendell and Sophie. What can we learn from our examples and the story of Wendell and Sophie?
This book is suitable for one on one and group sessions for children. It can be used for children with different ages because it covers a wide range of topics with the leading age group being from 4-8 years. Some of the limitations in using the book include; it is not clear whether Wendell changed his behavior after Sophie’s game. A child would not know what to do after realizing their actions hurt the people around them. The book covers other areas including parenting and discipline although this is not the primary focus of the author.
