Enemy Pie

Enemy Pie - Derek Munson, Tara Calahan King

I think this book would be good for bullying situations. The young boy in the story was feeling down because a teammate made fun of him and did not invite him to parties. His dad made an enemy pie. In the end the boys were able to put away their differences and see that they are not so different after all. I will use this book in my class by allowing the students to create their own enemy pie. This will be characteristics of bullies that will be written as ingredients such as 1 pint of mean words and 3 teaspoons of taunting. Then as a class we will create a friendship pie and include characteristics of friends. I think this could be read to 2nd graders and up. The Lexile Level is AD330L.
