Through providing an insight into Kevin’s thoughts, feelings and coping strategies, this picture book for ages 5-8 is a source of support for children who, like Kevin, find school difficult and feel that they are “behind” their peers. The book, which draws on the author’s experiences as the principal of an elementary school, is also the perfect springboard for discussion around difficulties at school, academic ability, self-esteem, confidence and recognising strengths.
James Dillon has been an educator for over 35 years, including 20 years as a school administrator. He is the author of No Place for Bullying: Leadership for schools that care for every student and Reframing Bullying Prevention to Build Stronger School Communities.
