Editorial Reviews

Praise for Dare!


“Dare! shows sensitivity to the child who has endured bullying for some time and shows how much fear he or she lives with . . . The emphasis on courage in this book is helpful to any child facing bullying in his or her daily life. The reading activities included in the book are excellent both for young readers to do on their own or for teachers or counselors who want to make a unit out of the books. I continue to be impressed by this series.”—3rdGradeReading.net
