Dog Eared by Amanda Harvey
“Out of my way, Big Ears!”
Otis is happily strolling in the park one day when a bully dog taunts him with this insult. Poor Otis is crushed. Defeated! Suddenly his ears seem much too large. And he doesn’t know what to do about them. . . .
Although this book is about the power of words, it is also about gaining a level of comfort with who we are. It is difficult to deal with insults, but we as parents must build our children's self-esteem to levels where they can handle the inevitable insult. You can find copies of Dog Eared through dealers on Amazon.
