The Beauties Bullying Adventure by Barbara Lucas is set in Amor Village. The story begins with Serenity, who gives birth to triplets named Hope, Faith, and Love – collectively known as The Beauties. The locals believe that each child would be magical and special. Sadly, Serenity does not survive the birth and it is up to her mother, Grace, and Ethan to raise the triplets. Each of the triplets inherits an enchanted bracelet from their mother on their ninth birthday and learns that it is their destiny to spread positivity and stop bullies one at a time by using their new superpowers. It is up to The Beauties to make this world a better place for everyone, while understanding that every person is unique and special in their way.

Thank you, Barbara Lucas, for writing The Beauties Bullying Adventure. This book should be available in every home and school library. I especially enjoyed the format, graphics, and easy-to-read language. Each character is well-defined with unique traits. Bullying inflicts deep scars on children, leaving lasting emotional, psychological, and physical effects. It undermines self-esteem, leading to anxiety, depression, and even suicidal thoughts. Victims may experience academic difficulties, social isolation, and a diminished sense of belonging. Barbara’s message is important for all children. Addressing bullying is crucial to safeguarding the well-being and future of our children. Stopping bullying requires a collective effort from individuals, communities, and institutions. By speaking up, seeking support, and taking appropriate action, you contribute to creating a safer and more inclusive environment.

The Beauties Bullying Adventure by Barbara Lucas is a fantasy children’s book about three daring sisters who rescue children from bullies. In Amor Village, a popular legend is that if a woman gives birth to triplets, they will be incredibly special and magical. So when Serenity bore three girls, Faith, Hope, and Love, there was great excitement and anticipation in the village. Unfortunately, Serenity did not survive the birth process, but before passing on, she left three charm bracelets of different shapes for her girls. They were to receive the bracelets on their 9th birthday. On the morning of their 9th birthday, Faith, Hope, and Love received their precious bracelets from their grandmother, and then something unusual happened when they all hugged. This was the beginning of their adventure as The Beauties.

The Beauties is a perfect name for a group of pretty super girls who fight against bullying, and I was impressed by their peaceful approach to executing their missions. I liked the girls' unusual superpowers and magical anti-bullying chant, and I enjoyed teleporting around the world with them. This tale is illustrated with beautiful pictures that I really enjoyed, and the plot was simple and short, which is good for a children’s book. I especially liked the moral of this story, and I believe it is one that every child needs to learn. The Beauties Bullying Adventure by Barbara Lucas is suitable for older children who can easily comprehend its message.

The Beauties Bullying Adventure by Barbara Lucas is a short children’s adventure story. Serenity has given birth to a miracle in Amor village—triplets. Legend claims each child will be magical, a special child in the world. Their names were Hope, Faith, and Love, known as The Beauties; each was blessed with a superpower. Bracelets handed to them on their ninth birthday help them teleport to their mother, who died while giving birth. She gives them a special mission—to stop bullying and violence among the young. They are to teleport around the world, spreading the message. Can the Beauties succeed in their special mission?

The Beauties Bullying Adventure by Barbara Lucas is a great story with lovely illustrations and an important message. On the outside, it’s a story of three sisters with magical powers, but it’s more than that; it’s a story that highlights the misery of bullying and the need to bring it to an end everywhere in the world. Although it is aimed at kids, plenty of adults are on the receiving end of bullying, not to mention those that instigate it, and together with their kids, they can learn the importance of ending it. The illustrations are colorful, and the story is well-written in easy-to-understand language that gets the message across brilliantly. The story explains why bullies do what they do and how bullying could be considered a disease that won’t improve without proper treatment. At the end of the book is a short questionnaire with three questions for kids to answer that will make them think about bullying and why it isn’t right. I loved this; it’s an excellent story that should be read in schools and at home.
