Don’t Call Me Fuzzybutt!
In DON’T CALL ME FUZZYBUTT!, Bear isn’t the only one who turns grizzly and says some not-so-nice words that shouldn’t be repeated. The book shows children in a gentle way the hurt that results from name-calling and gossip. It also helps them build empathy while developing positive communication, social, and conflict resolution skills.
DON’T CALL ME FUZZYBUTT! was selected a 2022 IPPY Bronze Medalist for picture books (7 and under).
