  • Book cover of  The Power of a Positive No


Willie Bohanon & Friends Learn the Power of Resisting Peer Pressure In graphic novel style, this book will show 3rd-8th graders how to choose true friends who will help in resisting negative peer pressure. The character building message features biblio-rhymology for right-brain thinking students and a rap song to reinforce the themes. In the fourth installment of the Award-winning Urban Character Education series, Willie and his friends are facing some difficult times. Bernard is being pressured to fight others. Derf is dealing with a tough home life, and making questionable choices with some new friends. And Chelsey keeps lying to cover up for others. Put it all together and you can see that peer pressure is affecting the group in a negative way.

Fortunately, counselor Mr. J is here to help Willie and his friends learn the importance of setting boundaries and saying no when it counts! A downloadable activity Guide is also available for The Power of A Postive No. 32 pages

    Peer Pressure Challenges

    Posted by M. G. Paregian, Reviewer on Aug 3rd 2018

    The reader is probably already familiar with "Peer Pressure." It is not fun. But it does exist! Here are 39 fully-illustrated (in color) relating to this common challenge found in neighborhoods and at schools. "Hey kids! I am Principal Hammontree of Boemont Jr. High, and there's a problem my students deal with every day." And so the principal of this school explains a common day-to-day challenge found in schools, as well as everyday living.

    A frank discussion takes place about the people in a "Friendship Bubble." There are many different types of personalities that may create a challenge for the students. These are described and enumerated, and are presented with ways to eliminate or at least, resolve some differences. The possible solution to these challenges are set forth. This is a timely book, addressed to help those who are bewildered by this problem.
