This colorfully illustrated storybook introduces Brad, an unusual shark, who doesn’t “fit in” with the other sharks. He is teased and called names by other sea creatures because he doesn’t fit the reputation of being a shark. So he tries to not hang around the other sharks hoping this will make a difference. But the teasing continues. He finally turns to his only friend Kia, a humpback whale, who tells him that he should not try to change who he is just to have friends.

Brad learns that, “True friends are those who like you for who you are and accept you no matter how different you are.” Kia tells him that it’s important to not respond to meanness with meanness. It is important to be positive. You can be firm with others when you need to, but not mean. When Brad tries these new skills, he learns that when being teased, being positive but firm is a better way to respond. He eventually gains new friends and earns respect for his positive and friendly attitude.

The CD includes 5 interactive, narrated mini-lessons with great animation and sound effects that kids will love! It also includes the animated and narrated storybook in both English AND Spanish PLUS reproducible worksheets and printable posters!

Written by Susan Bowman
Grades PK-5
Susan Bowman

Susan has worked as a social worker, and school counselor at the elementary, middle and high school levels. She has also worked as a counselor for incarcerated youth and started a non-profit, faith-based organization (Youth Hope Foundation) to help these young people. In 2005, the GED Testing Service awarded Susan with its highest honor, the Cornelius P. Turner Award, presented annually to a GED graduate who has made outstanding contributions to society in education or public, or social service. The award is named for Cornelius P. Turner, the founder of the GED Testing Program.

Susan has written 20 books and has led professional seminars throughout the U.S. and abroad on topics such as mentoring, challenging adolescents and self-injury. Susan’s remarkable life-story has been an encouragement to young people and professionals. She ran away from home at age 14. By age 19, she was divorced, on welfare and the mother of three children. Yet, with only a 7th grade education, a mentor encouraged her to pursue her education and she eventually earned a GED, then a BA degree, and finally an Ed.S. degree in counseling. Her experience as a runaway and teen mom has helped her to reach some of the most distraught youth in juvenile detention facilities.
