From School Library Journal PreS-Gr 1-Llama Llama and his friends cannot enjoy their school day because Gilroy Goat is being a bully. He laughs at the other animals during circle time, and he calls Llama Llama a “not-nice name” when he tries to sing. Although Gilroy’s teacher tries to correct his behavior, the bullying continues into recess (dirt throwing and destructiveness) until the llama calls him a Bully Goat. Realizing he’s hurt potential new companions, Gilroy is happy to accept Llama Llama’s renewed offer of friendship. Dewdney’s characters are rendered in paint, pencil, and pastels. The victims, the bully, and even the witnesses all look scared, worried, or sad throughout the story. This book clearly shows children the social, emotional, and academic consequences of bullying, how to take a stand against it, and how to be tolerant of someone who needs a second chance. A great discussion starter.-Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library.AB, Canadaα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
Llama Llama and the Bully Goat Hardcover – August 6, 2013 by Anna Dewdney (Author) Review
I like this story, but I wished it focused more on how to stand up to a bully, not so much on what a bully does. I am trying to teach my daughter to stand/speak up for herself, and it’s hard to find a book at this age level that does that. -Read Reviews-
My son is in love with the Llama llama series. This book in particular is a favorite of his. He has trouble telling when someone is being nice and mean to him. Thanks to this book he’s been able to make the distinction and label someone as a "bully goat" if they have been mean to him. When he is being mean to someone, I have found it useful to tell him not to be a "bully goat" in that situation. It seems to click for him now. He doesn’t want to act like Gilroy and apologizes. He seems to think Anna Dewdney writes books for whatever situation he is going through and is starting to make request for books. If you’re reading this son would like a book with the theme "Llama Llama takes too many pictures with mommy’s phone"!
