Did you know that there are kids out there who don’t even want to get out of bed in the morning because they know what going to school means for them?

· being teased and taunted ...
· being excluded and rejected ...
· being afraid that you’re going to be assaulted and possibly hurt...
· Sometimes it can even mean that you just can’t hang in there any longer, so you give up and take your own life.

If you are one of the cool kids at school, this book is for you.
But if you’re not one of the cool kids, this book is especially for you.

Emerson Elementary isn’t a real school, but it could be your elementary school. And the students at Emerson aren’t real kids, but the problems they face are real, and so are the choices they make. The Golden Rule is an old rule, but it's still a good rule to live by, and after reading this book, you may just possibly become a kinder, more compassionate human being, someone who treats others the way you want them to treat you.

So come along and join the students at Emerson Elementary and help them make some cool choices!

Review:

"This is an engaging book of stories that will empower parents and teachers to help kids deal with challenges like peer pressure and bullying." -- Rep. Jim Ramstad, United States Congress


"This is an engaging book of stories that will empower parents and teachers to help kids deal with challenges like peer pressure and bullying." --Rep. Jim Ramstad, United States Congress

"A powerful and poignant collection of real life social issues facing our kids today. It provides a wonderful opportunity for generating ethical and moral discussions with tweens and teens who are faced with the negative influences of peer pressure, bullying, and harassment. I highly recommend it!" -- Trudy Ludwig, Author of My Secret Bully, Just Kidding, and Sorry!

"A powerful set of case studies so interesting that they're bound to get kids thinking and talking about the problem of bullying. A superb tool for opening kids' eyes to their options!" -- Charles Boyle, NASA Alumnus and Author

"A valuable tool for adults who care about youth and wish to help them improve their interpersonal relationships and build a positive self-image." -- Dr. Donald Draayer, 1990 National Superintendent of the Year

"A wonderful resource for developing empathic critical thinking skills that will fortify a new youth culture of kindness and compassion. This is a much-needed addition to children's literature." -- Theresa Foy DiGeronimo, Author and Coauthor of many parenting books including Raising a Thinking Child and How to Talk to Your Kids About Really Important Things

"At a time when we're seeing a rise in peer cruelty and bullying, Sandra Humphrey offers a treasure trove to help cultivate our students' empathy and give them a new perspective. Highly recommended!" -- Dr. Michele Borba, Author of Building Moral Intelligence

"Bullying, social aggression, and harassment are more pervasive in schools than at any other time in our education history. It's time we train our kids how to respond to various bullying situations before they occur. Sandra Humphrey does exactly that in her new book Hot Issues, Cool Choices." -- Gene Bedley, PTA National Educator of the Year

"This book fills a very important need in the bullying prevention field and I recommend it highly." -- Stan Davis, Bullying Prevention Consultant

"This is a book that no school or community can afford to be without." -- Philip Bigler, 1998 National Teacher of the Year

"What an invaluable resource for all adults--parents, teachers, and mentors--who care about the development of kids." --Marilyn Sharpe, Director of Christian Parenting and Intergenerational Ministry, The Youth & Family Institute
