Biddly Triumphs: Zero to Hero
Biddly the red squirrel has a learning disability that not only makes it difficult for him to succeed in school, but he is also teased about it by his fellow classmates. Beany Bunny helps him with his learning disability and raises his self-esteem. At the same time he helps his classmates overcome a devastating problem that puts the entire squirrel population of his forest at risk.
What a marvelous story of learning disabilities. If a child has a learning disability this magnificent story allows a child to see there is a way to be successful. It is filled with hope. Everyone is touched by someone with a learning disability whether in the classroom, a sibling, relative or friend. I recommend this book highly for teachers, parents and children.

This is a magical story of a young girl who is bullied by two mean – spirited girls. Soon, in one magical moment, she learns to believe in herself by creating an ice cream shop with special powers. This inspiring tale sheds light on the negative impact of bullying and learning to rise above it.
I liked that the girl in the story dealt with the problems with bullies by fixing it herself. I also liked that the bullies learned their lesson.
