How the Moon Regained Her Shape by Janet Ruth Heller is influenced by Native American folktales and uses the phases of the moon to teach children how to deal with bullies.
Bullying is an ever growing problem and How the Moon Regained Her Shape takes a unique approach to show children how to regain confidence after dealing with put downs from a bully. The Sun insults the Moon and tells her how unimportant she is. The Moon begins to shrink away and unfortunately, believes the Sun's comments. A Comet sees how sad the Moon has become and shows the Moon the way to Round Arms' home. Round Arms helps the Moon to realize how important her role in this world is.
How the Moon Regained Her Shape helps children to understand that the things a bully says are untrue and teaches them to seek out family and friends that love them for who they are.
This award winning book should be shared in classrooms across the country. Educating children, from a young age, about bullying is the only way to put an end to this growing problem.
