“Wow! What a great idea!” was my first reaction after reading Owl’s suggestions to stop a bully—but H.I.T. doesn’t mean to swing at him. Little Chick Gets Bullied is a wonderful book offering sound advice on how to deal with a bully. Written by teacher-turned-author Nat Williams, this children’s picture book contains enjoyable illustrations and several examples of how a bully can interrupt and even destroy your fun activities. First, children need to know what bullying is, and second, how to deal with it. Who better to offer advice but a teacher and former camp leader? But, it’s written as an interesting tale rather than as non-fiction. The practical advice is offered in a subtle, but amusing way that children will enjoy. School and public libraries will benefit from the humorous—but serious—story of dealing with bullies.

When Little Chick is bullied several times, he asks others how to deal with a bully that’s ruining his fun. Kangaroo offers to teach him how to box, but Owl offers an acronym: H.I.T. so Little Chick can H.I.T. the bully. Children, parents, and teachers will like what H.I.T. stands for. I highly recommend Little Chick Gets Bullied because of its humorous, full-page artwork, an interesting story showing examples of bullying, and offering several solutions to school children. Author/teacher Nat Williams provides constructive lessons on how to deal with bullying in an easy-to-read story. And if H.I.T. doesn’t work, tell someone who can help. Little Chick Gets Bullied should be read to every child.

Little Chick Gets Bullied by Nat Williams is a book for young children about the important issue of bullying. Little Chick cannot get rid of this nasty, bullying bull who snorts and uses his threatening horns to harass this adorable tiny helpless chick. Whether Little Chick is building a sandcastle, relaxing in a kiddie pool, or having a picnic, the bull shows up to ruin the fun. Finally, a kangaroo who tries (and fails) to teach Little Chick how to fight suggests a visit to the Wise Old Owl to get some help. And the Wise Old Owl is wise indeed as he instructs Little Chick in the H.I.T. method. For kids beginning school, learning how to deal with bullying is essential, and Nat Williams’ little book can be an enjoyable way to begin the lesson.

The illustrations are terrific. Little Chick is so yellow, small, and cute. He (or she) even gets stuck in the kangaroo’s boxing glove. There is also an ostrich, a beaver, an elephant, and a lion, providing further teaching material about nature. The colors are bright and vivid, yellows, browns, and greens, with action to catch the eye as the bull wreaks havoc upon the peaceful settings. And there are good vocabulary words too—castle, approached, smashed, relaxing, peaceful, power, attention, acronym(!), humor, ignore—to name a few. Children need to be instructed in how to deal with bullying, and Little Chick Gets Bullied by Nat Williams is an excellent device to introduce the topic.
