ONE BOOK ONE SCHOOL: RECESS QUEEN
Mean Jean was Recess Queen and nobody said any different.
Nobody swung until Mean Jean swung.
Nobody kicked until Mean Jean kicked.
Nobody bounced until Mean Jean bounced.
If kids ever crossed her, she'd push 'em and smoosh 'em
lollapaloosh 'em, hammer 'em, slammer 'em
kitz and kajammer 'em.
Until a new kid came to school!
Parents and teachers will appreciate the story's deft handling of conflict resolution (which happens without adult intervention).
"A lively story about the power of kindness and friendship" -- Publishers Weekly
"A lighthearted look at a serious topic in schools and on playgrounds everywhere..." -- School Library Journal
"Great for reading aloud and joining in." -- Booklist
