The Courage to Care / El Valor de Cuidar
Elyse April and Regina Sara Ryan Illustrated by Maria Oglesby

Here is a bi-lingual (English/Spanish) picture book to promote self-esteem and to prevent bullying. Most of what we have seen on the market, are books for older children, after-the-fact. Here is a unique contribution to the anti-bullying literature: a preventative picture book that can be embraced by both children and parents to educate us all in the issues of power. Stand Up! ¬°Enfrenta! is co-written by two former teachers of young children.They hope to help stem the tide of this tidal wave overtaking our children nationally, crossing all borders of economic and social classes

The building of self-esteem is an important and delicate process in working with a young child. Like little sponges, they innocently absorb the impressions around them to better understand how to survive and thrive in their environment. This simple picture book is packed with impressions to help encourage creativity, individuality and confidence, skills that can help combat the susceptibility to peer pressure that is so damaging to our children. It is also a call to parents to become their child's center of gravity and sanctuary. This is an awesome responsibility and we all need help fulfilling this task, either from books, wise elders or peer counselors. That is why the authors have include resources at the back of this book for further study.

Both authors wish readers to delight in the illustrations and savor the simple messages they are trying to convey. This book is more timely than ever, as even our elementary and middle schoolers are subjected to cyber-bullying. We know that the suicide rate among teenage girls in particular is "off the charts," and intervention at an earlier age makes the message of this book essential. The authors felt compelled to raise their voices and to contribute something that would hopefully curtail this madness
