                  In today's society, it's important to remind children that, although we are different on the outside, we are very much alike on the inside. Unfortunately, bullying has become a major problem in the United States. It's not only painful for children, but occurring at an increasingly young age. Maria's books are meant to empower children to positively handle tough situations through their timeless messages. Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun teaches children to respect each other's differences while dealing with adversity with self-confidence and courage. The Juice Box Bully, written by Bob Sornson and Maria Dismondy, shows children that strength can come in numbers. By encouraging community in Mr. Peltzer’s classroom, children help a new student learn the ropes. Pink Tiara Cookies for Three, focuses on a subtle type of bullying. When teasing happens between friends, especially a group of three friends. Stay tuned for details on Maria's fourth book that will be available December 1, 2012! It's sure to be a hit!
