Bullying starts at an incredibly early age and often leads to dangerous results as the news bears out every day. Gorp's Dream very gently shows kids how kindness is contagious and can help create a safer environment for all. Teachers, librarians, churches, police departments, parents everywhere, and the National Education Association have used this book to teach lessons of kindness and to try to eliminate the development of bullying. As it's easier to train a toddler that to re-train a troubled teen, the book has been lauded for its ability to instill these delicate and hard-to-teach lessons in even the youngest children.
